The Story Behind the Photo, Walter Mitty’s Journey…
Displaced people make camp in Goma after fleeing fighting in Karuba and Mushake villages in Congo. This photo played a significant part in the new film The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (Photograph by Marcus Bleasdale)
In the newly released film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller plays Walter, an introverted photo editor at a magazine who frequently daydreams of being somewhere else or someone else entirely. When he can’t find an important photo negative taken by an acclaimed photographer (played by Sean Penn) for the magazine, he decides to take a leap of faith (quite literally, at certain points) and travels around the world just to find that missing photo.
In a defining moment in the film (which you can see in the trailer), Sean Penn’s character suddenly comes to life in a photograph and gestures for Walter Mitty to come toward him. The original photo (without Sean Penn, of course) was taken by National Geographic photographer Marcus Bleasdale.

"It’s a balmy and late evening in Ubud Bali. Sitting outside my favorite cafe ironically called KAFE, from the corner of my eye a person draws my attention. Covered in ink, cigarette in his mouth, he is dressed in black, has long hair and at first glance he resembles an Apache - a Native American Indian. As he kick starts his 1963 modified Vespa and drives off into the night, I find myself intrigued by his character and charisma - who is he I ask? I need to find out."

Philips’s last feature film is the upcoming ‘A Most Wanted Man’ directed by Anton Corbijn
“He was not only the most gifted actor I ever worked with (and judging by the legacy he leaves behind I am certain I share this with most if not all directors who were fortunate enough to work with him), he had also become an incredibly inspiring and supportive friend,” Anton Corbijn

Elliott Erwitt, 100+1
6 december, 2013 — 2 march, 2014
Elliott Erwitt is the photographer who notices details that most people miss, situations before they occur. “There is really nothing mysterious about photography”, Elliott explains. “It’s about observing. Often it’s a matter of luck and circumstance. Hopefully I haven’t taken my best picture yet.”
Elliott Erwitt (Elio Romano Erwitz) was born in Paris in 1928 to Russian immigrants. Some days before the start of the Second World War, his family escaped to the United States and settled in Los Angeles. When Erwitt decided to become a photographer he also took the decision to move to New York. After a year in the army, he began to work as a freelance photographer and in 1954 he became a full member of the legendary photojournalist cooperative Magnum. In 1955 he was one of the photographers in the famous The Family of Man exhibition.
In a career spanning close to 65 years, Elliott Erwitt has produced celebrity portraits, advertising commissions, photo reportages from Europe, the United States, Japan and Cuba plus all the private images that he exhibits around the world. “There are motifs everywhere; you just have to be observant and care about what’s going on around you. A picture that engages you, that makes you think, that gives you some kind of emotion, makes you laugh or cry. That’s a good picture.”
A master portraitist, Elliott Erwitt has photographed John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Jack Kerouac, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Akira Kurosawa and Andy Warhol, among others. He claims that taking pictures of celebrities is no different than taking pictures of non-celebrities, except that celebrities sell better. He is perhaps best known for his often humorous images of dogs. “The best thing with dogs is that they are everywhere, they are sympathetic, they never complain and they never ask for prints”, Elliott says.
Today his images can be seen in museums and important collections all over the world. But he has not slowed down; he continues to do commercial work and take pictures for new books. So far he has produced some 45 titles. “I like to see my photos in books. It’s an acknowledgement of my work.”
“I want to evoke emotion with my photographs, to make people either laugh or cry. If you can achieve that I think you’ve done well”, Elliott Erwitt explains.
