Erwitt has lived all over the world, speaks three languages, has photographed countless celebrities from Grace Kelly to Clark Gable as well as seven presidents.  He has won every award his profession can offer, is a past president of Magnum…the finest photo agency in the world…and recently was honored with a one-man exhibition by the International Center of Photography for his lifetime contribution to the medium.”
