Signature
All sizes signed, titled, and dated

“You just have to care about what's around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy,” Elliott Erwitt once said. Renowned for his humanistic photographs, Erwitt was born in Paris in 1928, spent his childhood in Milan, and then moved to the United States. His early interest in photography began while he was in Hollywood and matured in the 1950s while photographing various subjects for the Army Signal Corps in Germany and France. Friends with Edward Steichen, Robert Capa, and Roy Stryker, he shot everything from powerful images of Pittsburgh and the U.S.S.R. to iconic portraits of John F. Kennedy, Simone de Beauvoir, and Che Guevara. Erwitt served as Magnum's president for three years, after which he produced documentary films and comedy films for HBO.
