Elliott Erwitt | Provence, 1955
I’m sure you’ve seen this image—a man riding a bicycle with baguettes  strapped to it and a boy looking back at the photographer—printed on  countless posters. It was originally shot as an advertising assignment for France’s tourism office, and it remains an iconic image of the  French countryside to this day (for more about the ad assignment, read this excerpt from Mary Wells Lawrence’s memoir). Elliott Erwitt, its photographer, received the International Center of Photography’s  Infinity Lifetime Achievement Award for 2011, and both Time Magazine and the New York Times have honored him with slide shows of his work.
