"My attraction to dogs is stirred purely by emotion… For me, the dogs are both an excuse and a reason for taking these pictures. They give me an excuse because they make good subjects. I like them, people want to see them, I can't resist!"

- Elliott Erwitt

Elliott Erwitt is a famously keen observer of the canine world. The Dog Dogs exhibition at Galeria de Fotos do Centro Cultural Fiesp displays 68 black and white photographs taken in several countries – including Brazil – between 1946 and 2004, showing how our relationship with these animals has roots in mutual resemblance and emotion.
