Elliot Erwitt Exhibition
Known for his satirical humour and sharp wit, Elliott Erwitt rose to fame after he was invited to join Magnum photos by founding member Robert Capa in the 1950s. He has since become one of the world’s most successful and influential photographers, having produced over twenty historical photography books and been honoured by numerous solo shows at establishments such as the Smithsonian, the Museum of Modern Art and the Chicago Art Institute. He is represented in the United Kingdom by Beetles+Huxley.
An exhibition to celebrate the 90th birthday year of the photographer, Elliott Erwitt, will remain open at Beetles+Huxley, London until 18 February 2018. The show includes over 50 photographs surveying Erwitt’s career, ranging from photos of New York in the late 1940s to portraits of well-known figures and rare vintage prints from across Erwitt’s career.
