Elliott Erwitt. Regarding Women
Photographic master Elliott Erwitt has created many noteworthy portraits of womankind over the years. In Regarding Women he presents us with an exceptional collection composed (almost) exclusively of black-and-white female portraits. This volume is Erwitt's evocative personal tribute to female strength, intelligence, and beauty. The archival material spans several generations, with many images not previously published or rarely seen before. Conveying respect, admiration, and sometimes awe, these photographs portray all the complex elements that make up the feminine nature, whether formidable and tenacious, or occasionally capricious and coy. Through capturing their many varied facets the photographer shares his insights into how all kinds of women make their way into-- not to mention their mark on--the world. In these pages, readers will find romance and glamour, touches of sensuality, as well as much affection. Of course, there are also those disarming flashes of candid everyday humor that are so quintessentially Erwitt.
