With the new millennium, the calendar offered an original picture narrative on the theme of European families in the timeless Elliott Erwitt style. Of course, at the centre of everything is coffee, a beverage that, in its different forms and rituals, marks the moments of everybody's day. Elliott Erwitt was born to Russian parents in Paris in 1928. In 1939 he moved to the United States, where he studied photography and cinema. In 1950 he started working as a professional freelance photographer.
