Gathers humorous photographs of children, travelers, showgirls, horses, dogs, birds, street scenes, beaches, weddings, soldiers, and fashion shows

Norton Pub
Seeing what few others see, and capturing it for all of us, is the essence of Personal Exposures. For this volume Elliott painstakingly culled the work of a lifetime, rediscovering prints he had not seen in years and creating a unified whole that reflects a consistent, mature vision of photography and humanity. Here are men, women, and children in off-guard moments; old people; little girls hamming it up; and even various dogs, who have their own preoccupations. The pictures reflect a lifetime of humorous, ironic observation and sensitivity to the human condition.
Elliott Erwitt’s eye for humor catches at the same time the subtle hint of tragedy.
