Elliot Erwitt

July 22, 2009

Erwitt is one of my personal favourites, not only for his photographs but also for his attitude towards photography. If Cartier Bresson is the master of the decisive moment, then Erwitt is the master of the undecisive moment; quirky, absurd, ironic and full of humor.

Quote: “It’s about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” (taken from the Magnum Photo Website)

Here are some images from the Magnum site.
