Remarks

“I remember once when I was fourteen years old sitting on the very edge of a cottage window, bending over with an armful of apples clutched to my bosom as if I were just about to leap down. At best a difficult pose to hold even for a few minutes, but I had to do this for more than an hour with no respite until Stieglitz was satisfied that the light was right, that my pose and expression were right, in other words until all conditions were perfect” (Georgia Engelhard, “Alfred Stieglitz: Master Photographer,” American Photography 39:4 [April 1945], 9).
