Anonymous asked: whats your name so i can cite your post? thank you!!! :)
"Grains of Light Tumblr" will do just fine, thanks. I should emphasize that none of the photos here are mine, and I hope I’ve done a good enough job of pointing out the original photographers.

Elliott Erwitt | New Rochelle, NY, 1955
A nice domestic scene with his wife and kids. Erwitt’s son Misha interviewed him about this photo:
Misha: You took a photograph in 1955 of our mother cooking dinner, her back to the camera. She has Ellen, who’s crying, in one arm and she’s reaching into the oven with the other. I’m sitting behind them in a high chair and there’s another kid standing, watching.
What’s the back story to that photo? Also, you were traveling all over the world, on the road constantly. What was it like to come home from an exotic locale to a house full of screaming kids?
Elliott: There is no story behind that photo, just a moment of the normal chaos of a family with numerous children. I loved coming back home to screaming children.

Going on hiatus
I’d like to keep this blog going, but for now I have more pressing priorities. Sorry.
