Elliot Erwitt Studio Visit

Elliott Erwitt started taking pictures at the age of 16 and, 68 years later, he hasn't stopped!

From JFK and Marilyn Monroe, to countless pictures of dogs, Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt has shot them all, bringing his own unique humour and vision to images that have inspired a generation of photographers. TateShots went to meet him at his home in New York.

Erwitt's work was featured in the Another London exhibition at Tate Britain 27 July -- 16 September 2012. The exhibition explored the capital through the eyes of some of the biggest names in international photography.
