Georgia O'Keeffe | Alfred Stieglitz's Muse
"Stieglitz photographed me first at his gallery '291' in the spring of 1917. . . . My hands had always been admired since I was a little girl—but I never thought much about it. He wanted head and hands and arms on a pillow—in many different positions. I was asked to move my hands in many different ways—also my head—and I had to turn this way and that. . . . Stieglitz had a very sharp eye for what he wanted to say with the camera. . . . His idea of a portrait was not just one picture. His dream was to start with a child at birth and photograph that child in all of its activities as it grew to be a person and on throughout its adult life. As a portrait it would be a photographic diary."
Georgia O'Keeffe, 1978
