Beetles+Huxley is pleased to present an exhibition to celebrate the 90th birthday year of photographer, Elliott Erwitt.
The exhibition includes over 50 photographs surveying Erwitt’s career, ranging from photographs of New York in the late 1940s, to portraits of well-known figures and rare vintage prints from across Erwitt’s career.
Erwitt moved to New York aged just eighteen, where he became involved in the New York photography scene, meeting influential photographers, Edward Steichen, Robert Capa and Roy Stryker. The exhibition will include two early photographs taken in New York in this formative period, in which Erwitt’s eye for composition is already evident. His first major project quickly followed in Pittsburgh in 1950, commissioned by the legendary Roy Stryker. Three recently rediscovered works from this project, further demonstrating Erwitt’s developing eye, will also be on display.
