Elliott Erwitt. Kolor

Palazzo Ducale in Genoa presents Kolor, the first great Italian retrospective exhibition of colour photos by the renowned american photographer Elliott Erwitt, born in Paris on the 26th day of July 1928 and member of Magnum Photos since 1953.

Curated by Biba Giacchetti and promoted by the Municipality of Genoa and Fondazione di Palazzo Ducale, the exhibition is a unique and unprecedented event. While black and white photos by the great master have been widely exhibited in all over the world with much success, his colour production has never been on show in Italy before.

As a matter of fact, only recently has Erwitt set off on a journey, which has taken him several months to sieve through his huge archive of colour photos, a technique he had decided to use only for his publishing, institutional, and advertising work. It ranges from political to social topics, from architecture to the movie industry and fashion. They are actually quite different photos, which he looked at again after several decades with a critical and contemporary view. These pictures help us learn about a parallel and yet equally unique world.

The resulting exhibit is quite surprising in its elegant arrangement, use of colour, irony, at times even humorous touch, without mentioning Erwitt's versatile approach to photography that has made him so much loved and unique. The exhibition consists of about 135 pictures personally selected by Elliott Erwitt from his two great colour projects, namely Kolor and The Art of André S. Solidor.
For the first project, Erwitt has tapped into his old Kodak negatives characterised by his typical language, and ranging from portraits of VIPs to genuinely ironic and even irreverent pictures. In the André S. Solidor project, conversely, he creates an actual alter ego of himself, with self-portraits, expressed through a production which is no longer based on random shots and intuition, as also well demonstrated in a short and funny video.

A multimedia section at the end of the exhibition features two videos about Erwitt's long career as a TV author and director, and a video collection of some of his most famous black and white pictures.
