Over 150 previously unseen images by photographer Elliott Erwitt will be published for thefirst time in Found, Not Lost. Spanning more than sixty years, the photographs inthe book, often taken during lulls or breaks between assignments in his prolific career, havebeen selected, edited and sequenced by Erwitt himself.
This book has been an opportunity for Erwitt to revisit the photographs he made in his early career and to uncover meaning upon second glance which was not apparent when the image was originally taken. The master of visual one-liners - bold statement images replete with humour, irony and acknowledged absurdity - the photographs selected for this book are quieter, more subtle and suggest Erwitt's increasing confidence in his own eye. By selecting these photographs he has begun to both examine and challenge how his younger self saw the world.
