elliott erwitt

Soulcatcher Studio is honored to present the photography of legendary Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt. A leading photographer of his generation and a member of the prestigious Magnum Agency, Erwitt has been making photographs all over the world since the late 1940s. Known for spontaneous, often humorous snaps, along with poignant documentary studies, he has spent the last sixty years capturing the famous and the ordinary, the remarkable and the mundane, often using the camera to express his unique sense of humor. In the process he has produced some of this past century’s most beloved and enduring images. He is without a doubt one of the era’s finest image-makers.

Born in 1928 in Paris of Russian parents, Erwitt emigrated to the United States with his family in 1939. He studied photography in Los Angeles City College (1942-1944) then film at the New School for Social Research (1948-1950). As a young man, Edward Steichen helped Erwitt get his first commercial photography job. From 1950 to 1952, Erwitt was a freelance photographer for Collier’s, Look, Life and Holiday. He became a Magnum Agency associate in 1953 and a full member in 1954. Today his original photographs reside in most all major museum collections.
