ANDRÉ-ADOLPHE-EUGÈNE DISDÉRI
[1819 – 1889] French photographer

 
To make a portrait, it is not enough to reproduce the proportions and forms of the individual with mathematical accuracy; it is also, above all, necessary to understand and represent the intentions of nature manifest in that individual, saving and improving them.... - André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri
