I try to photograph her beauty; with a man I try to show his character. Once I photographed a man with a big nose, and emphasized his nose, and he was very pleased with the picture. That could not happen with a woman. The most intelligent woman will reject a portrait if it doesn’t flatter her. Only once in my whole career did it happen that a blonde asked me, ‘Please make me look intelligent.’ Unfortunately it was impossible.

What an appalling pile of misogynist horseshit. 

(Reblogged from life)

The things I am good at, I am great at. I am terrible at everything else. Sometimes I hurt people I care about very much through my idiocy. It’s not whether they forgive me or not, or whether they understand what a mixed bag of a human I am, it’s that I can’t imagine anything worse than hurting a friend. 

I appreciate your asking, though, and I hope whatever has been making you blue lately gets better. 

Why does life have to suck so much?
