An American in Paris at Leica Gallery Vienna: Elliott Erwitt, legendary photographer, longtime Magnum-member and master of the subtle art of wit. Erwitt was born in Paris in 1928, but spent his childhood in Italy before immigrating with his parents to the US where he found a permanent base in New York City. The passionate cosmopolite returned to the French capital, which was the scene of some of his first photographic ventures and home to Magnum Photo’s founding office, on an almost regular basis – his Leica always at hand.  We offer about 40 photographs from a period of no less than seven decades and is thus as much an ode to the so called City of Love as it is a representation of the impressive lifework of one of the major photographers of our time.
