Advertising art director turned photographer Alan Burles on the influence of French-American photographer Elliott Erwitt and the beauty of getting ‘lost in wonder, love and praise’
I’d like to begin by misquoting the first line of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 – “It was love at first sight.”
The first time I saw a photograph by Elliott Erwitt I fell madly in love with him.
