Georgia O’Keeffe

1956

“I decided to photograph her as another friend had described her: ‘Georgia, her pure profile calm, clear; her sleek black hair drawn swiftly back into a tight knot at the nape of her neck; the strong white hands, touching and lifting everything, even the boiled eggs, as if they were living things - sensitive slow-moving hands, coming out of the black and white, always this black and white.’  This portrait hangs in her Abiquiu home, now a museum operated by the Georgia O’Keeffe Foundation.”
