The Guardian Pays Tribute to Billy Jay

Posted By Administration, Thursday, August 13, 2009
Updated: Friday, December 27, 2013

Bill Jay, who has died aged 68, started out as a photographer but made his reputation as a writer on and advocate of photography.

He was the first editor, in 1968, of the immensely influential magazine Creative Camera and then founder, in 1970, of Album photo-magazine (which ran for all of 12 issues). He went on to stimulate interest and debate through his work as a curator, magazine and picture editor, lecturer and mentor and, above all, through writing on photography.
