“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
I’ve often looked at Elliott Erwitt’s photos with much admiration. His philosophy has become my mantra when looking at just about anything. Photography has changed the way I see things. Seeking that part of an ordinary scene that is unusual and mostly unnoticed. Looking for the photo within the photo. Seeing the tree rather than the forest.
Here are a half dozen examples of his work… enjoy!
