From Kate Orne’s profile of Jeannette Montgomery Barron for Upstate Diary:

On appearances: [JMB] “It’s funny but I get the feeling that people are sometimes more comfortable if I come through the door with a few suitcases full of equipment. I rarely use more than my camera and a light though. But I bring all of that stuff along anyway just to make everybody happy. You know how when you ask an Italian how they cook something and they say “Sale, pepe, olio”? That’s kind of the way I feel about my photography: I don’t need many ingredients.”
