Talking Photography With Elliott Erwitt

I learned long ago that it’s best to approach your heroes with trepidation, because they rarely live up to expectations. So when I met Elliott Erwitt in Perpignan, France, years ago, when we both had shows for Visa Pour l’Image, I was reluctant to talk to him. Imagine my surprise when he asked to trade prints. I upped the ante and asked whether if I bought his book, “Personal Best,” he would sign it for me.“Don’t buy my book,” he said. “It’s much too heavy to carry on the plane.”

Police often wrongly claim that photography equals obstruction of their duties

Share Button

When I was a teen-age amateur photographer, I snapped a picture of a large group of Philadelphia police officers loitering in a rail terminal.

In her 1977 collection of essays, “On Photography,” Susan Sontag identified a feeling of helpless voyeurism that comes over us as we look at photographs of people in the midst of conflict. She also wrote about how repeatedly seeing such images could anesthetize the vision and deaden the conscience. Sontag understood photographs of conflict to be making a utilitarian argument — that they could bring us into a state of productive shock — and showed that they seldom did what they claimed, or hoped, to do.
