What happens next? This irksome little question is key to story-telling. Whether ancient bards or trendy filmmakers, narrators have to keep us guessing. Yet, we often forget that life itself is a chain of unpredictable instants – each with its unique character. Even when seconds apart, experiences can be distinctly different. You never know what’s around the corner; until it hits you in the face! Change often does come all at once. Who better to grapple with this constant conundrum than Elliott Erwitt? Over a notable career, he’s established himself as master of the unembellished moment. As you’d expect from Erwitt, these sequences are often comic – sometimes heart-rending – and always compelling.
