I stumbled across Erwitt's smaller book Dog Dogs at a book fair and became instantly obsessed with him. This book is a larger version of the original and although it has a third of the photos, the huge format makes up for the loss of the rest of them. An aspect of his style that I find compelling is the use of the backdrop. He incorporates the surroundings so well into his photographs thus creating a complete scene. Many photographers remove the subject from the surroundings and sterilize the image but Erwitt embraces the scene and creates a very different photograph. And for someone who photographs animals and understands how important it is, he really captures the spirit of each of the dogs. These images captivate me. This is a book that I covet and highly recommend.
