Elliott Erwitt, peripatetic photographer


The photographs in this exhibition in San Franscisco capture daily life with renowned Elliott Erwitt’s trademark visual wit, as he documents serendipitous encounters between people and their surroundings. With a touch of humor and irony, as well as an eye for the humane, Elliott Erwitt’s photographs reveal the most elemental and universal candid human emotions.

With an affecting social stance and acute observation, Erwitt is the archetype of the peripatetic photographer. Erwitt’s instantly recognizable images have adroitly chronicled the social landscape of Europe and the Americas for decades. His work is described by MoMA curator John Szarkowski as “one of the few photographers whose work is also identified by extraordinary wit.”
