About the exhibition
For this summer, the Museo Diocesano will host a retrospective dedicated to Elliott Erwitt, one of the most important photographers of the 20th century who is still alive. The exhibition presents one hundred of his most famous shots, from the most iconic black and white ones to the lesser-known colour ones that Erwitt decided to use for his editorial, institutional and advertising work.
The exhibition offers a glimpse of the world through the ironic, surreal and romantic – but always curious – gaze of the photographer, who in his long career has immortalised various fields, from politics to social issues, from architecture to cinema and fashion. A journey through portraits of celebrities and children, images of travel, metropolises and the great events of history, but also of his own family.
Elliott Erwitt is very attached to Milan, the city where he spent his childhood until he left for the United States because of the racial laws. The selection of images in the exhibition, many of which have never been exhibited in Milan, was also curated by him, as is the case with every project that concerns him.
Tickets and Information
The project is hosted in the spaces of the Museo Diocesano Carlo Maria Martini.
Until 5 September, the exhibition will only be open in the evening from 6 to 10pm with the special “Aperitif at the Chiostro Bistrot + photography exhibition” formula at €10, with entrance from Corso di Porta Ticinese, 95.
