Mr. Elliott Erwitt, i salute you

can’t express how much i admire this man!

Elliott Erwitt is a french-born advertising and journalistic photographer.  he is best known for his black and white shots of ironic and absurd situations within everyday settings. his world fame began when he joined the Magnum Photos agency in 1953, which allowed Erwitt to shoot photography projects around the world.

his style is unique and memorable. his collection of portaits is amazing. marylin monroe, che guevara, andy warhol, simone de beauvoir represent only a few names he ”freezed in a moment”.  but be sure to check all the sections in the portfolio file. i can look at his work over and over again and be just amazed at the fact, how he is able to capture such stunning moments of everyday living.
