    Elliott Erwitt & M9

    Elliott Erwitt is in Austin for third lecture of The Icons of Photography series presented by the Austin Center for Photography. Elliott will be making a two night appearance in Austin at the Blanton Museum of Art Auditorium.

    When Elliott saw the M9, he asked "Now, how were you able to get one of those?"

    M9, 50/2 Summicron

    He lived three blocks from me when I lived in Newtown Pa. . Wonder if he still does. Great shooter
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I don't know, but he came to Austin from Sao Paolo and his next stop is Italy...not bad for 81 years of age.

    "Great shooter" is an understatement.

    Presuming he is still shooting, I hope I'm still going like that at 81.

    You should have fell to your knees and presented him with the camera to take your picture with

    And your answer was...?


    Let's see, Seal's got one, all the major bloggers seem to have gotten one, Sean Reid probably has a case of them, but Elliott Erwitt doesn't make the cut...

    Makes you think what the world has come too, doesn't it? Economics and viral marketing, pure and simple. Most people don't care who Elliott is, but they sure as hell recognize Clapton or Seal shooting a Noctilux and M9 when pictured is some "glad Mag." Can't blame them for wanting to maximize exposure just hope there are people out there like Elliott being looked after too.

    Looking at the female company with him in Monza's picture he is being very well looked after!

    Re: Elliott Erwitt & M9

    Looking at the sites posted above -- I love his work!

    So, does he use a Leica? And, if so, does he even want an M9?

    When he first saw the M9, he responded by pulling out his black paint MP presented to him by Leica.

    So, maybe he's still all film?
