Then again maybe he doesn't take any pictures. Jose Mourinho is one of the world's top football managers but didn't actually play football. ;)



Yeah, but he's from Portugal.

Any asshole can kick a ball, as has been proven time after time. Just look at the guys doing that and tell me I'm mistaken.

OP, that is how it is with many of a photog. Their best work is shown first, worst work last. HCB was not know for great portraits anyway.

In any case, you can get some nice shots all messed up when it comes to focus and blur...

MoMA has a great collection of HCB's portraiture work, roughly about 150+ images. You need to see them before you form your own judgement. Let me quote Mark Twain, “What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know. It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.”

That should be tattood on the back of every politician's hand.

Is it already tattooed on the back of your hand?

Have you found a solid attribution?

Nope, deep in my mind where I see it when I need to see it.

Thankfully, I'm not much into politics, so can apply it to other ventures instead.
