Elliott Erwitt, documentary photographer


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Great picture back in the day of slow film (it was all slow compared to today’s digital), getting just enough depth of field for a picture. If one blocks out of one’s mind that the woman is probably looking at Erwitt and not the model, it accomplishes much.

      Seems like I have seen a lot of photographers photograph mannequins. He was probably among the first. But as I don’t know much about photography, I just heard his name today.
