I fell in love with the work of Elliott Erwitt, a Magnum photographer. I am burning up with jealousy because I have a “thing” for absurd, ironic and spontaneous photos in black&white. His photography combines all of what I’m passionate for and makes me feel sorry to have been born in 1989.

BIOGRAPHY

Elliott Erwitt
(American, born France, 1928 – )

It’s about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” -Elliott Erwitt

Born in Paris in 1928 to Russian parents, Erwitt spent his childhood in Milan. Then emigrated to the US with his family in 1939. As a teenager living in Hollywood, he developed an interest in photography and worked in a commercial darkroom before experimenting with photography at Los Angeles City College. In 1948 he moved to New York and exchanged janitorial work for film classes at the New School for Social Research.

Erwitt traveled in France and Italy in 1949 with his trusty Rolleiflex camera. In 1951 he was drafted for military service and undertook various photographic duties while serving in a unit of the Army Signal Corps in Germany and France.

In 1953 Erwitt joined Magnum Photos and worked as a freelance in that golden period for illustrated magazines. His personal work has been published in countless monographs. His photographs are collected and exhibited in museums around the world. To this day he is for hire and continues to work for a variety of journalistic and commercial outfits.

In the late 1960s Erwitt served as Magnum’s president for three years. He then turned to film: in the 1970s he produced several noted documentaries and in the 1980s eighteen comedy films.

Erwitt became known for benevolent irony, and for a humanistic sensibility traditional to the spirit of Magnum. With a touch of humor and an eye for the humane, his black and white photographs reveal the most basic and candid human emotions. He developed his vision during the post-war rise of documentary photojournalism, and has captured many of life’s most poignant ironies through an amusing vernacular.
