Veteran photographer Elliott Erwitt who is the subject of a current exhibition at Chris Beetle Fine Photographs, is noted for two distinctive styles of work: serious commissions - evocative captures of places and people...

But Erwitt is equally know and admired for his witty 'snaps' (as he calls them): often artfully (or craftily) staged for maximum humorous or quirky effect.

I defy anyone to look at these clever compositions and not smile!

"You can find pictures anywhere. It's simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what's around you and have a concern with humanity and the human condition."

The exhibition Elliott Erwitt remains on show at  Chris Beetles Fine Photographs  until 12 October 2012

Brian, this is slightly off topic, but I popped over to your "The Works" page recently, and I just have to say, "Well done!" From pirates to Tolkien to Disney and more, your range of interests (and book and audio projects) is simply superb!
