[Photographer, b. 1913, San Francisco, d. 1997, Novato, California.]

 When my father saw me with this little camera at his stone yard, he said, “You don’t need that thing.” He reached into his pocket and took out a pencil and made a sketch of me in no time, and said, “This is all you need.” 
 I never photographed a subject more than one or two exposures. Then I’d go on to something else. I don’t admire photographers who use motors.
