teNeus Elliot Erwitt Microsite

Looking for some fun?

teNeus has launched a microsite featuring the work of Elliot Erwitt. Born in Paris, to Russian parents, Erwitt spent his childhood in Milan before arriving in the United States in 1939. His interest in photography blossomed while in LA, took him to New York, and through both the Pittsburgh (where he undertook work for Edward Steichen) and Europe (while serving with the armed forces).

In 1953, Erwitt joined Magnum Photos, working freelance for a number of publications, and finally served as president of Magnum in the late ’60s. Later, he turned to film.

The teNeus site allows a view into some of Erwitt’s most iconic frames. It also allows users to caption photos, via twitter.
