"the hand portraits this artist took of his wife, lover, and muse Georgia O'Keeffe? There are some artists who walk this planet who are what I call "hub" artists, meaning that without their presence there would be no "spoke" artists. And when you take the time to review who his spoke artists were then you can begin to get a glimpse of the power and influence of this great mind.
This man not only mentored some of the greatest minds in the timeline of art but he inspired and supported them in ways that led to their achievments. Names such as Picasso are just a few. In the day when French Impressionists were literally snubbed and pushed out of the art community he created a place for them, gave them a home, gave them a boost.
Any serious art photographer must have this on their studio shelf, as well, any serious art photography University level program is sure to include this in the standardized required texts for the course syllabus'."
