John Gay

England Observed John Gay 1909——–1999, English Heritage, Swindon, 2009.

 Finishing project 1 and moving onto project 2 People Unaware I want to start looking at how other photographers approach an unknown subject.

One of the pleasures of doing this course is discovering photographers I have never heard of, John Gay is one of these. “Many of his photographs capture ordinary people going about their lives in a completely natural way and obviously unaware of his presence” There are also some lovely images that “capture children immersed in their own world and oblivious to the intrusion of the camera”  pg 100. Not as easy to take candid images of children these days unfortunately.
