Elliott Erwitt - Works

Strange I never posted anything about this great among the great photographs. Born in 1928 (in France actually), he's still among us and here I selected pictures covering an incredibly long period of time (maybe 60 years). What is fascinating is how he did not lose (contrary to many of his pairs) his eye for catching scenes (often funny) that say so much about occidental way of life caught here in its moments of fantasy or pathetic. And the first shots of this series also show that he did not avoid the rude reality of the American society. Quite a shame his wikipedia notice is so short when so many second-order famous people have so long ones. A site here

  1. Quite amazing and he was also what a photographer should be by that time..a man who should know how to hide himself
