Elliott Erwitt

This is one of my favorite photographers.

I think you'll like him too.

Isn't he brilliant? I love the simple moments that he catches. I shot a project in one of my photo classes that was inspired by his work... maybe someday I'll have a scanner and I'll be able to upload some of those photos. I also wrote an essay that won a creative writing contest at my alma mater with a whole thread about him & his work.

Once, I even touched his portrait of Marilyn Monroe in Aspen, Colorado, and almost had a heart attack. His stuff is wonderful.

Happy Thursday!
