RUTH ORKIN
US photographer (September 3, 1921 - January 16, 1985)

 
To be a photojournalist takes experience, skill, endurence, energy, salesmanship, organization, wheedling, climbing, gatecrashing, etc. – plus an eye and patience. - Ruth Orkin , Photographers on Photography : A Critical Anthology by Nathan Lyons (Editor) , Page: 79
I always felt that being a photographer was 90 percent being a salesperson. Then and today. - Ruth Orkin , Photographers on Photography : A Critical Anthology by Nathan Lyons (Editor) , Page: 81
Being a photographer is making people look at what I want them to look at. - Ruth Orkin
