Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Grant Scott, who has done so much with his film Do not bend: The photographic Life of Bill Jay to remind us of the seminal role played by Jay in British photography from the late 1960s to mid-1970s, has made a new discovery. He has located Jay's contact sheets from a trip he made with Tony Ray-Jones to New York in 1968 hidden in a plastic box in a house in Tempe, Arizona.
Scott sets out the background to the trip and illustrates them. One hopes that there is more to come.
Scott blogs about them here; https://unitednationsofphotography.com/2021/09/16/seven-days-in-new...
His film about Jay is available free to view on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wd47549knOU&t=60s
