Quote of the Week: Philippe Halsman


"This is the essence of a work of art: that you never touch bottom. If a picture has for everybody exactly the same meaning, it is a platitude, and it is meaningless as a work of art. The same is true for a portrait: if it is not rich in character and meaning, it is a poor portrait."

Philippe Halsman
(2 May 1906 - 25 June 1979), Latvian-born American portrait photographer.
