Twenty-five years [after photographer Minor White made his "pilgrimage" to see Alfred Stieglitz], White could recall only in the most general terms what took place in those meetings--they looked at prints, they talked about what was happening in photography and modern art--but one of his journals reveals what made the deepest impression on him. Stieglitz asked him, "Have you been in love?" And when White answered that yes, he had, Stieglitz said, "Then you can photograph."
