HORST P. HORST
[1906 – 1999] German-American fashion photographer
I don’t think photography has anything remotely to do with the brain. It has to do with eye appeal. - Horst P. Horst, Master Photographers – The World’s Great Photographers on their Art and Technique , Page: 113

Noël Coward taught me how to relax. He told me I shouldn't worry because the subjects themselves were so frightened by the camera that they hardly saw me. That really loosened me up. But you can hide behind the camera — Clare Luce showed me that. She had been drawing on a piece of paper during our session. Afterwards I asked her what she'd been doing— and she'd drawn a sketch of me. That made me feel very selfconscious. - Horst P. Horst

Fashion is an expression of the times. Elegance is something else again. - Horst P. Horst - Photography Masterclass: Creative Techniques of 100 Great Photographers [Paul Lowe] foreword by Simon Norfolk

Lighting is more complex than one thinks. There appears to be only one source of light. But there were actually reflectors and other spotlights. I really don’t know how I did it. I would not be able to repeat it. - Horst P. Horst - On his 1939 photograph "Mainbocher Corset"
