Elliott Erwitt

I don't think of myself as anything but a photographer. I think it's better not to identify oneself as any particular type of photographer, but just let people react to your work the way they see it. Professionally, it's also wise not to categorize yourself: people may consider a photojournalist to be a threat, so it's also better not to be thoughtful of as that. The most important thing is to be inconspicuous. In order to achieve the best results in all situations, you need to be as inconspicuous as possible-a fly on the wall.
