Charles Flowers writing about Elliot Erwitt:
"...[he] does not like hoity-toity, artsy scirbbling about his photos. That's neither faux naivete nor an inability to recognize aesthetic issues. Rather, it is his choice to engage the viewer as human being- without reference to trends, techniques, or historical elements in photography. In a sense, the less one knows about such things, the more immediate will be the response in the story of his kind of photo."
I don't like talking about my work. How do you talk about your work when it is about all of life and living and being alive? It's a bit overwhelming.
A small thought that i wrote in an email to a friend:
"all humanity is kinda like a team!....as individuals, we know we can't do it all, can't experience it all....so we need eachother to fill in those blanks and spaces that we ourselves- alone- will never fill....art is what we use as currency to give to each other; it is the mortar we pack into those empty spaces...i guess the object of the game, the goal, is to simply experience life and all it's beauty to the fullest extent...."
