Présentation de l'éditeur

Cette collection a pour sujet les photographies canines si distinctives d'Elliott Erwitt, l'un des faiseurs d'images les plus célébrés du 20ème siècle. Dans un hommage sincère et original au meilleur ami de l'homme, ce maitre de la photographie capture toutes la diversité du monde canin. Nous sommes ainsi témoins de tous les états d'âme de Fido, joueur, fripouille plein d'entrain mais aussi serein et se révélant être un compagnon constant. Chenapans audacieux et doux animaux, les images d'Erwitt , en combinant un sens infaillible de la composition avec la magie du moment, dévoilent toute la particularité qui fait que ses créatures soient aimées de la plupart.

This amazing journey with Elliot Erwitt's amazing dogs is one you won't want to miss! 15 août 2012
Par D. Fowler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Dogs swirl though the pages of Elliott Erwitt's book seemingly more human, and certainly less pretentious, than those around them. Elliot once upon a time discovered that dogs were "everywhere, and dogs are interesting, so you take pictures of them." And so he did. One can attempt to second guess his intent or attempt to attribute some sort of intellectual treatise on the life of dogs, but there simply isn't one. Dogs are dogs and they act like them. There is no shame when one decides to doo his thing on a sidewalk or roll over and play dead in a cemetery. In this book there is no posturing, nor acting, but rather nature at its best.

It's really not comical when a small dog tries to make love to a Newfoundland, but it's worth a try, darn it. Naturally everyone claims that one's choice of dog reflects their own personality traits and somehow Elliot captures that superbly. A belle dame's not-so-coy and haughty sideward glance toward the camera is mirrored by the pit bull nestled in her lap. The juxtaposition of her beautiful smile and the one direly in need of orthodontia will elicit a few laughs. The dogs who are more than welcome to slip into the family photos let us know they belong there.

I love browsing the pages, flipping this way and that as there is no particular rhyme nor reason for any of the photos to take precedence over another. These black and white matte photographs seem timeless. They could have been taken yesterday or fifty years ago and the essence of the dog, unlike its human counterpart, has not changed. A dog is a dog. They rove through the pages watching us and watching each other. They love and are loveable, much like this book. If you want to take a journey with dogs, take one with Elliot Erwitt. The interpretation is all yours. I simply loved the journey!

It Is All About The Dogs 31 août 2012
Par H. F. Corbin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The great American poet Emily Dickinson said that the mountains grow unnoticed. While that statement may be true, they do not "grow" when being shot by perhaps the best of landscape photographers there has ever been, Ansel Adams. I certainly admire his work and come back to look at it again and again. On the other hand, I am totally captivated by those photographers who can turn a candid moment into great art. Cartier-Bresson was a master of the technique; surely no living practitioner is better at this kind of photography than Elliott Erwitt. While people present their own set of problems for a photographer who is trying to capture the moment, surely four-legged creatures up the ante. Mr. Erwitt in his latest collection ELLIOTT ERWITT'S DOGS shows that he is up for the challenge.

Shot from around the world-- the United States, Brazil, France, Germany, England-- the photographs span roughly sixty year or more. Mr. Erwitt apparently was just as good when he started taking pictures as he is currently. For instance, the photograph (14 - New York City, USA, 1946), taken when he would have been just 18 years of age, is just as intriguing as those from the 21st Century. These beloved animals are everywhere: at weddings, cemeteries, beaches, big city streets, automobiles, the ocean, doorways, the countryside, parks, a vet's office, and even with a president of the United States (President Lyndon Johnson). And while these dogs are often shot with two-legged animals, they are never upstaged by them. The pictures ultimately belong to the four-legged stars. Only rarely does a dog appear to be posed for a portrait. One exception to the rule of that is the dog on the second page of photographs (9. New York City, USA, 1999) in which the gorgeous pooch is sitting, wearing a rose necklace, looking into the camera.

Some of my favorite shots-- and there are many of them-- are of close-ups of mutts with only the lower legs and feet of their human companions so Mr. Erwitt says once again that this is all about the dogs, not their owners. The photographer often finds his magic moment as these animals romp at the seashore. Then there are the classic shots of the people leading their dogs into the horizon, as it were. Or how about the bikini-clad woman lying on her back with her pooch in a similar position on his back too (31. Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, France, 19677). A stroke of genius on Mr. Erwitt's part. His sense of humor is in evidence often too as in the dog checking out the two nudists (41 Ile du Levant, France, 1968) or making use of a vertical object (pole) for his bodily functions. (45. Berlin, Germany, 1995).

In his short but thoughtful introduction, Peter Mayle, apparently as much a lover of dogs as Erwitt, says that "When we were introduced, I wasn't sure whether we should shake hands or sniff one another. But once that had been resolved--we shook hands--it was quickly obvious that our shared interest in dogs would lead to friendship. Thus, as time went by, I became familiar with the artist and his work. " Mr. Mayle further states that there are three things wrong with most photographs of dogs, something that Mr. Erwitt manages to avoid: (1) most dog photos are posed, (2) or the dogs are too often "an accessory" to a human being and (3) they are purebreds rather than mongrels.

This great collection of photographs should appeal to lovers of dogs, lovers or fine photography and those with and who appreciate a keen sense of humor.

Not quite what I expected..but nice 13 février 2014

Not all quite pics of dogs (like the cover implies) but they were interesting. I few scantily-clad folks - but nothing crazy. Totally unnecessary but hilarious: a dog defecating in a busy area and looking back like YOU are invading HIS privacy!

Elliot Erwitt's love for dogs and photography leads you to look the world of dogs in a very unique way making art on every angle. In pure black and white this book is a portrait of the Dogs in a human background.

If you are an Erwitt fan, many of these pics are in his other books. But if you love dogs.... this is divine.
