We celebrate the photographer’s inimitable wit through his wry observations on life, relationships and, of course, dogs.
A dog is a man’s best friend
“Dogs have more to do than children. For one thing, they are forced to lead a life that is really schizoid. Every minute, they have to live on two planes at once, juggling the dog world against the human world. And they’re always on call. Their owners want instant affection every day, any time of day. A dog can never say that he has other things to do. He can never have a headache, like a wife.”
– Elliott Erwitt – Dog Dogs (1998)
Curiosity is everything
“I don’t think you can create luck. You’re either lucky or you’re not. I don’t know if it’s really luck or if it’s just curiosity. I think the main ingredient, or a main ingredient for photography is curiosity. If you’re curious enough and if you get up in the morning and go out and take pictures, you’re likely to be more lucky than if you just stay at home.”
– Elliott Erwitt – About Photography (2014)
