Exhibition Dates: November 13, 2010 – January 15, 2011
The gallery is pleased to host the first Canadian exhibition of work by the acclaimed photographer Elliott Erwitt.
Born in Paris in 1928 to Russian parents, Erwitt spent his childhood in Milan and then emigrated to the US, via France, 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.
