Elliott Erwitt

“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.” – Eliott Erwitt

Elliot Erwitt was born in France to Russian parents and emigrated to America when he was ten where he later studied photography and filmmaking and became a photographers assistant for the United States Army before becoming a Freelance Photographer.
He had a taste for shooting ironic, absurd, bizarre, comic situations in documentary style photography.  He was a master of the ‘decisive moment’.
