Bill Jay’s End Note

Written by Eric W on May 15th, 2009

I just heard that Bill Jay passed away.  If you’re a casual enthusiast of photography, you may not know who he is.  Most of the pros know him and think quite fondly of him.

I had only recently heard of him, after my wife gave me a gift subscription to LensWork last year (link currently has a memorial to him).  He wrote a column called “End Notes” that I found fantastic – often the most interesting part of the magazine.  Most months, I would start with his column and work my way back.

Embracing writing style, wonderful observations.  It was like a family reunion, at dinner.

Now I will never have a chance to meet him in person.  I think I’ll be spending some time downloading all of his articles and reading them.

Much better writings than this:
