Bill Jay passed away

Bill Jay (1940 – 2009) recently passed away at his retirement home in Costa Rica.

My first recollections of Jay was when he was the Editor of the British magazine Creative Camera, which had I started purchasing back in 1971.  Most recently, Jay was noted for his writings of the two page end-notes in LensWork magazine.

Another tribute to him by Darius Himes, is here.
