To select the never-before published color photographs for this vast project, Elliott Erwitt sifted through his ample archive of nearly half a million 35mm slides. Then he began the mammoth task of whittling it down to this epic collection of roughly 450 pages. For most of these images, the color managed to stay miraculously preserved and every evocative detail is as crisp as the date of its creation. Whether world leaders or sassy showgirls, the subjects reflect Erwitt's own wry and eclectic sensibility. To say the juxtapositions are intriguing would be an understatement. From marketplaces to military camps, Vegas to Venice, there's a rich mixture of public pageantry and carefully observed private interactions. English/German/French/Italian/Spanish edition.

WIth more than 400 photographs, the book spans Erwitt's color work from the nineteen-fifties through the early nineties..."Kolor" is a thoughtful exploration of more than thirty years of photography. There are images from all over the world, shots of movie stars and politicians, staged fashion photographs and sidewalk action shots.
Jesse Wender, The New Yorker Online, September 25, 2013
Over the past 60 years, Elliott Erwitt has photographed everything from street signs to sexpots and everyone from political leaders like Che Guevara to celebrites like Truman Capote and Marilyn Monroe (breezy white skirts and all). But until now his color work has largely been overshadowed by his candid black-and-white photography (a hobby he maintained when he wasn't busy shooting ad campaigns for real-life Mad Man David Ogilvy).
For his newest tome, Erwitt pored over nearly half a million 35-millimeter slides of his professional color work to assemble KOLOR, ...while Erwitt's black-and-white images- from celebrity portraits to documentary shots of the civil-rights movement-are still a major part of the 20th-centruy photography canon, KOLOR proves that his bright and bold imagery deserves a place in our collectibe memory too.
