Bill Jay

In the latest issue of Lens Culture there is a heap of quotes by writer and photographer Bill Jay, proving again just what a genius guy he is, here are just a few favorites:
"Art is not democratic; if millions take bad pictures they are still bad."

"A photograph is a mirror; mostly it reflects the prejudice of the of the viewer."

"Why do photographers photograph? to make unreality Visible."

"Artists are individualists who copy each other."

And the best:
"Photography is pointing at things while skiing in a straight jacket."
