France, Paris Poster
Veteran French-born American photographer Elliott Erwitt's work has long demonstrated a quirky sense of the absurd and humorous in the everyday. It is no wonder then that over the decades one of his signature subjects has been dogs, navigating their way through the human world. A dog regularly brings human pretension to heel, showing us our fussy folly in almost any setting, even as they caper comically about exposing and undermining our self importance. For Erwitt, they are catnip.
This poster image capturing a remarkable instant of apparent dog levitation is at once dramatic and comic, singular and everyday, composed and dynamic. What could have occurred to make this little dog leap so high while his earth bound handler stands so still? It truly is a dog's world.
