"When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."
— Edward Weston, Daybooks, Vol. II, February 2, 1932
Nice piece. Makes me proud to do what I do. Too bad its great content is trivialized by sandwiching it between a half a minute of advertising and "Up Next: Dog left at stranger's house with poignant note".
