Elliott Erwitt’s Regarding Women

Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt has created many notable images and photography books, as well as feature films, television commercials and documentary films. Much of Erwitt’s work shows us everyday life, through the eyes and lens of someone with with a bit of a sense of humor, and an appreciation for our world. Some of his most famous images feature very famous women like Marilyn Monroe [slide 6] and Jacqueline Kennedy [slide 5]. Erwitt’s newest book, Regarding Women (teNeues 2014), includes these images, some never seen before in print or rarely seen, as well as photographs of women from all over the world. The book “is Elliott Erwitt’s evocative personal tribute to female strength, intelligence, and beauty,” the publisher said in a press release. The 300-plus-page book includes images from throughout Erwitt’s celebrated career.

Erwitt, born in France in 1928, immigrated to New York with his family in 1939. A few years later, after moving to Los Angeles, he worked for a photography lab that made “autographed” fan prints of famous Hollywood stars. Drafted by the United States Army in 1951, Erwitt moved around a lot, eventually ending up back in New York City. Along the way he met photography greats like Edward Steichen, Robert Capa and Roy Stryker, who became his mentors. In 1953, Magnum Photos founder Robert Capa invited him Erwitt to become a member of the agency.
