In this unique book, photographic legend Elliott Erwitt presents a series of vignettes, each showing a sequence of photographs shot just moments apart. The characters portrayed vary widely: Erwitt captures everyone from infants to the elderly to dogs. The themes range from the buzz of street life to lovers caught in a casual embrace. True to Erwitt's distinctive style, these images are un-staged, and the subjects' spontaneity shines through heartbeat by heartbeat. Gifted storyteller that he is, Erwitt gives you a sense of what happens next, the end point being sometimes comic, sometimes poignant, and often involves a wink.
