Horst P. Horst (Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann)
[Photographer, b. 1906, Weisenfels/Saale, Germany, d. 1999, Long Island, New York.]
Lighting is more complex than one thinks. There appears to be only one source of light. But there were actually reflectors and other spotlights. I really don’t know how I did it. I would not be able to repeat it. (On his 1939 photograph “Mainbocher Corset”)
I don’t think photography has anything remotely to do with the brain. It has to do with eye appeal.
