I just recently discovered the American Suburb X webpage and I would like to share it to those who haven’t seen it yet! As they say on their website:

“AMERICAN SUBURB X is an ever-growing archive and fiercely edited look at photography’s global past, present and ever-unfolding future. Our mission is to provide, educate and titillate those who are obsessed with photography and all of its beautiful moving parts.”

Take a look at their interview section here. A lot of interesting reading ahead of you!

They are even on Facebook!

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.
