"Like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mr. Erwitt has been a seeker of the “decisive moment,” an instant in real time when people, animals or objects appear before the camera in surprising and illuminating ways. What distinguishes Mr. Erwitt’s work has been his keen eye for the comedy in everyday life. He is the Henny Youngman of photographic one-liners. I mean that as high praise. Mr. Erwitt, now 82, delivers his visual gags with such economy and sweet-tempered lack of pretension that it is easy to overlook just how good he is at what he does."--KEN JOHNSON, New York Times
