Tony Ray-Jones

There was an interesting article in the recent edition of the British Journal of Photography about Tony Ray-Jones Notebooks.

The BJP ” That Tony Ray-Jones had a profound influence on the generation of documentary photographers who emerged in Britain in the 1970s and ’80s, despite his untimely death at the age of 30, says as much about the singularity of his ideas as his actual pictures. And it’s all there in the notebook and the ephemera he left behind ….”

I particularly liked the entry entitled “Approach” which “details 12 commandments that would still serve well today, particularly his mantra  – Don’t take boring pictures”
