Photographer Quotes

philippe_halsman

" Of the thousands of people, celebrated and unknown, who have sat before my camera, I am often asked who was the most difficult subject, or the easiest, or which picture is my favorite. This last question is like asking a mother which child she likes the most."

Philippe Halsman
American photographer
1906-1979
