[b. 1929] famous fashion photographer

Portraits are the most intimate photographs. The image will survive the subject. - Victor Skrebneski
To do a portrait today, I decide how close I can get to my subject. First, of course, mentally or intellectually, then in the viewfinder. Music cues the subject and me when to shoot. The music played during a photography session is most important -- stimulating to the subject and to me. As in a film, the music builds or becomes quiet, romantic; just one note sets the actor up to emote for his audience. I want a reciprocal portrait, not a bureaucratic one. - Victor Skrebneski
