Lotte Jacobi
[Photographer, b. 1896, Thorn, West Prussia, (now Torun, Poland), d. 1990, Concord, New Hampshire.]

 I was to be a photographer and that was that. It did everything for me. I love people. I needed the camera more than ever I would have believed. 
 In making portraits, I refuse to photograph myself as do so many photographers. My style is the style of the people I photograph. 
 All the technique you can learn—and you should learn everything you can—you should have it here in the fingers not here in the head—and then you forget about it.
