Wall Street Journal Review: Eliot Elisofon at Gitterman Gallery

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 06, 2015

Eliot Elisofon

 

on view through April 18, 2015

 

 

There is a reason Life magazine dominated the market for more than 40 years: It had great picture stories. Eliot Elisofon (1911-1973) was a Life photojournalist for almost 30 years, covering such diverse stories as Gen. George S. Patton’s campaign in North Africa and Ella Fitzgerald’s birthday. None of the 49 black-and-white prints at Gitterman were published in Life, but they demonstrate the talent that made Elisofon an asset. There are eight pictures from his 1939 “Playgrounds for Manhattan” project that was exhibited at the New School; children are shown in the dirt at a construction site, playing hockey in the street, crawling in a sewer pipe and idling in a puddle. Another series of eight pictures, “David Smith’s Studio” (1938), shows the young sculptor and his work with great sensitivity; Elisofon clearly understood what the artist’s modernist work was about.   - William Meyers
