dog days – elliott erwitt

7 Jul

the trope of mutual resemblance between master and pet is wittily immortalised by magnum photographer elliott erwitt’s work on dogs and its owners.

the snaps place the same importance on man’s best friend as it does on its human counterpart, in a tender and humorous anthropomorphisation.

if you’re in germany you can check out some prints from his dog dogs collection of white and black photographs at bremen’s focke museum until october
