Dachshunds in Art: Elliott Erwitt

Who?  Elliott Erwitt (b. 26 July 1928 Paris, France) is an advertising and documentary photographer known for his black and white candid shots of ironic and absurd situations within everyday settings -- the master of the "indecisive moment".  Some of his photos have been newly released, like this beautiful little gem, and Dog Art Today has the scoop:

No words can express how much I love this newly released photo by Elliott Erwitt, one of the greatest photographers of the 20th and 21st century. The fact that Erwitt has devoted some of his extraordinary talent to photographing dogs, makes him, IMO, the greatest dog photographer ever.
His photographs are exceptional because he looks at life with fresh eyes every time he takes a shot.
