Elliott Erwitt: Home Around the World August 15, 2016 – January 1, 2017

Balancing journalistic, commercial, and artistic work over a career spanning seven decades, Elliott Erwitt has created some of the most celebrated photographs of the past century. Elliott Erwitt: Home Around the World will present more than 200 of these remarkable images, including rarely exhibited examples of his early work in California, his intimate family portraits in New York, his major magazine assignments, and his work as a filmmaker, as well as his ongoing personal investigations of public spaces and their transitory inhabitants around the world. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue edited by Jessica S. McDonald and published by Aperture.
