    Default Elliott Erwitt offers inspiration for photographers

    Silence Sounds Good, the documentary about photographer Elliott Erwitt who still works with black and white film, is available on demand from Vimeo. $9.99 to rent this inspiring film about a remarkable man who is a great photographer.

    At 55 seconds, again at 12 minutes 20 seconds, and again about 14 minutes into the film, you can see a Montblanc 149 (?) pen in a desk holder.

    Enjoy, and happy snaps.

    It's available on Amazon Prime Video, hope that's also good in the UK.

    Found another link, unknown if it's really "free" though.

    I'd like to see it become available on Apple TV.

    I saw this documentary twice, and I could look at it more. Elliott Erwitt is the photographer that aroused my passion for black and white pictures. His way of showing the ironic and absurd moments in people's daily lives, made me love photography even more. As a photographer beginner, he truly inspires my work. Lately, I have been making nature shoots in different locations I've rented from www.aperfectspace.com. I still have some work to do and some improvements in my career, but I am happy I found this passion!

    Another beautiful movie was Finding Vivian Maier.

    A documentary on the late Vivian Maier, a nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs earned her a posthumous reputation as one of the most accomplished street photographers.

    When I heard about that, the only way to see it was for me to buy the DVD. I've watched it several times. Of course, now it's streamed.
