Smiling at Life – Elliott Erwitt (8 pics)

Take a look through Elliott Erwitt's body of work and don't tell me you didn't crack a smile. Don't worry, you're not alone – his good-natured photos make you feel as though the world is smiling right along with you. Known for his candid black-and-white shots of absurd or ironic occasions, they show you lighter side of life, don't they?

“It's about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It's simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what's around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” – Eliott Erwitt
