Erwitt (On the Beach, Norton, 1991) is a seasoned photographer whose collection around the theme of males and females, love and sex becomes a book of duotones trying desperately to live up to the reputation of its creator. The widely respected Erwitt is 40 years into his trade, but he fails here to offer the reader more than a few wry smiles.
