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. 
 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. 
 In making portraits, I refuse to photograph myself as do so many photographers. My style is the style of the people I photograph.
