Archives – April 28 2023

Between the sexes
“We all find new dimensions of love between the sexes. The sober, profound, long-lasting possibilities for love: affection and loyalty and friendship, not confused by urgent passion. This isn’t a second-best, thirdhand kind of love. It is, for some relationships, the right love for the season.”
– Elliott Erwitt – Between the Sexes (1994)

Love hurts
“1st Truth: It is painful to be separated from the people you love.
2nd Truth: It is painful to be united with the people you don’t love.”
– Elliott Erwitt

“There’s one good thing about the first kind of pain: how nice it feels when, and if, the separations stop. Of course, when one person in a couple feels the second kind of pain, it probably won’t be long before the other feels the first type. Some philosophy.”
– Elliott Erwitt – Between the Sexes (1994)

Every cloud has a silver lining
“In life’s saddest winter moments, when you’ve been under a cloud for weeks, suddenly a glimpse of something wonderful can change the whole complexion of things, your entire feeling. The kind of photography I like to do, capturing the moment, is very much like that break in the clouds. In a flash, a wonderful picture seems to come out of nowhere.”
– Elliott Erwitt – Between the Sexes (1994)
