O'Keefe and Adams

I love this photo of the both of them. I noted down these quotes from the exhibit in the Georgia O'Keefe Museum.

**According to John this isn't Adams he took the photograph. John tracked it down and the man in the photo is Orville Cox. And I tracked down who Orville Cox was.
"Orville Cox was the wrangler at Ghost Range and the guide on a several week trip taken by O'Keefe, Adams and others. One interesting point of the photo is that it was taken with a 35 mm camera."

Ansel Adams and Georgia O'Keefe

"Nothing is less real than realism. Details are confusing. It is only by selection, by elimination, by emphasis, that we get at the real meaning of things.
- Georgia O'Keefe 1922

"Art is both love and friendship and understanding: the desire to give.
- Ansel Adams 1937
