up arrow Elliott Erwitt Instagram Tribute


Elliott Erwitt was a advertising and documentary photographer. He was known for his ability to coax oddity from the human condition in an uncritical manner which fostered wide appeal.

Some of his most iconic photographs featured dogs and their owners. He could wait patiently for that moment when dog and owner shared that proverbial look, that similarity between dog and owner. He was particularly fond of jumping dogs.

In conjunction with a retrospective in New York City, NPR asked its Instagram followers to tag their dogs. They posted the result in this slide show called Dogs In Flight.
