Elliott Erwitt has joked that he’s been around so long, most editors think he’s dead. The 91-year-old Magnum photographer has made iconic images of the Civil Rights movement, the Cuban Revolution, not to mention celebrities and dogs. SILENCE SOUNDS GOOD finds the laconic visual legend very much alive and snapping as he travels back to Cuba for the first time since his iconic Newsweek photos of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara in a funny and humanistic portrait of one of the greatest living photographers.
