21 Days to Baghdad

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.

It’s hard to define what Araki is up to. A little bit of everything and a lot of bondage maybe, but few photographers are as versatile and knowledgeable as the crazy japanese.

If you would like to see more videos of Araki, I can strongly recommend to watch “Arakamentari” (and here is the trailer):

Interesting interview with American/Belgian photographer Tomas van Houtryve, who went undercover as a Belgian chocolate-maker in order to penetrate the secretive nation of North-Korea. Listen to his fascinating tale at BBC world service here, and take a look at his website here.
The pictures from the North-Korea can be found on his website, or use this direct link at Foreign Policy here. I have also added his blog to my blogroll that can be found on the left hand side of my blog.
