"In all art studies, the rendition of the human figure has an important place. To master this medium photographically is extremely difficult, and one of the great challenges to the photographer. In Marguerite I found an exquisite model, and she became the subject of my book Figure Studies. One day we sailed past these huge granite blocks on a little Caribbean island, and it was then that I perceived the beautiful inter-relationship between the soft outline of the human body and the crude and fantastically shaped rocks."
 
From 'Notes on the Photographs' in Fritz Henle 1973.
