Dec 23
Canadian photographer, journalist. He is best known for portraits of the great personages of his time, e.g. Winston Churchill, in "Life Magazine;" wrote "Faces of Our Time," 1971.
I have found that great people do have in common ... an immense belief in themselves and in their mission. They also have great determination as well as an ability to work hard. At the crucial moment of decision, they draw on their accumulated wisdom.

There is a brief moment when all there is in a man's mind and soul and spirit is reflected through his eyes, his hands, his attitude. This is the moment to record.
Within every man and woman a secret is hidden, and as a photographer it is my task to reveal it if I can.
I've also seen that great men are often lonely. This is understandable, because they have built such high standards for themselves that they often feel alone. But that same loneliness is part of their ability to create.
If there is a single quality that is shared by all great men, it is vanity. But I mean by "vanity" only that they appreciate their own worth. Without this kind of vanity they would not be great. And with vanity alone, of course, a man is nothing.
