"Smokey Joe

On Character...

This is the essence of a work of art: that you never touch bottom. If a picture has for everybody exactly the same meaning, it is a platitude, and it is meaningless as a work of art. The same is true for a portrait: if it is not rich in character and meaning, it is a poor portrait. -Philippe Halsman, "An 'Astonish me' Sunday", A Sermon by Philippe Halsman, Popular Photography, March 1967, p. 64

... Just little ol' Skee :-)
