Everybody is photogenic. It    depends    on    the    connection    between you and the one who takes the picture. Everybody can centre a face. But   to   make   a   face   expressive   is   another matter. The   point   is   not   to   look   good   on   a   picture, but to be right and authentic. To   make   a   picture   means   not   to   capture an instant but to make the instant eternal. To   make   a   picture   means   to   take   a   face, to   bring   it   into   a   darkroom   and   to   light   its features,   not   with   an   artificial   light   but   with the greatest sensibility. To   expose   oneself   in   front   of   a   camera   is an   act   of   confidence,   it   imeans   to   let   the ego    be    stripped    down.    It    is    a    deeply audacious act. To    make    a    picture    means    to    distill    the essence    of    a    look.    From    an    iris    to    the diaphragm, just a tie of light.
