I allowed life to give me presents, and everything just sort of happened the way it was supposed to happen. I did not pursue anything. It more or less pursued me.

Photographer Ruth Berhnard, who died this week at 101, as quoted in today’s New York Times.

Ruth Bernhard became a photographer “in 1935 after a chance meeting with photographer Edward Weston on a beach in Santa Monica”. Bernhard was a member of Group f/64, a group of modernist photographers in the Bay Area who included Ansel Adams, Imogene Cunningham and Dorothea Lange.
