Saint-Tropez, France (by Elliott Erwitt, 1979)

En esta serie, que tiene lugar en un cementerio, Elliott Erwitt dice, “Realmente no se qué va a pasar -comienza con una mujer va a un cementerio para depositar unas flores y un perro la sigue.” La última imagen muestra al perro rodando por el suelo- y esta imagen podría valerse por sí misma, pero se hace más interesante por aquellas que la preceden. Pero a pesar del chiste, esta imagen sigue quedando abierta, sin final. ¿Está el perro haciendo el muerto o, simplemente, jugueteando?


In this series, which takes place at a graveyard, Elliott Erwitt says, “You really don’t know what is going to happen —it starts with a woman going to a cemetery to deposit some flowers and a dog follows her.” The last picture shows the dog rolling on the ground—and could stand on its own as the picture—but it is made more interesting by those that precede it. But even as the punch line, this image is still open ended. Is the dog playing dead or simply being playful?
