Elliott Erwitt : The Museums


Ways of seeing
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
– Elliott Erwitt – Museum Watching (1999)

The endless fascination of museums
“People seem to be attracted to items in museums with which they have a special affinity. I’ve noticed people sometimes take on the look of an item on display. Perhaps we are drawn to things that resemble ourselves. Certainly, people form relationships with particular works of art. If a painting or sculpture grabs you, you can come back and visit it again and again, perhaps for the rest of your life, and get something out of it each time.”
– Elliott Erwitt – Museum Watching (1999)
