About Son of Bitch
Elliott Erwitt is best know and most beloved for his sly, witty take on people going about their lives in public. Here he trains his lens on dogs. He is a long-time member of the Magnum Photo Agency.
Erwitt was born in Paris in 1928 to Russian parents. He spent his childhood in Milan, then emigrated to the US, via France, with his family in 1939. As a teenager living in Hollywood, he developed an interest in photography. Erwitt worked in a commercial darkroom before experimenting with photography at Los Angeles City College.
