How he captures images

Unique, Erwitt manages to tell a succession of events visually using the snapshot preferred language. The result:

  • a composition of bizarre objects, leaping, iconic, playful, surprised
  • or even better, the unsuspected perfection born of fatality.

The type of photography that I like, the one in which it is seized the moment, is very similar to this hole in the clouds. In a flash, a wonderful picture seems to come out of nowhere. (Elliott Erwitt)
