[ In His Own Words ]

Elliott Erwitt makes me laugh.

His even keeled sensibility

could entertain me for hours.

In this short video he answers

a few questions submitted by


Elliot Erwitt not exactly endorsing Photoshop.

If you are interested in the answers to these questions, check out the video:

  • Is the digital age corrupting the world of photography?
  • Any missed opportunities or photographs you wish you had taken?
  • Why is street photography dominated by black and white?
  • Do you ever get anxious taking pictures of people in public?
  • When taking pictures for “Dog Dogs” did you look at the dog or the human subject first?
  • Is there any photo you wished you had taken but didn’t?
  • Is there any photo you wished you had NOT taken?
  • Of all your fantastic photos, which is your best and why?  This answer is classic.
  • “The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words,” Please explain.
