NATHAN LYONS
The active product of the picturemaker must not be inhibited by meaningless ritual, but should be approached through self-clarification. - Nathan Lyons

Photography has achieved an unprecedented mirroring of the things in our culture. We have pictured so many aspects and objects of our environment in the form of photographs (motion pictures and television) that the composite of these representations has assumed the proportions and identity of an actual environment. - Nathan Lyons

The accidents of millions of amateurs devoid of a picture vocabulary--which produced an outpouring of multiple exposures, distortions, unsual perspectives, foreshortening of planes, imbalance--has contributed greatly to the visual vocabulary of all media since before the turn of the century. - Nathan Lyons

...the eye and the camera see more than the mind knows. - Nathan Lyons

Today the photograph is being considered as a relative artifact of metaphoric concern, much in the same sense as automobile, comic strip or soup can. If we consider man’s visualizing activities in relation to the photographic picture, then we may readily understand how the nature of sequential concerns, of the multiple exposure, might be considered more naturalistic perceptually than our traditionally held concept of the straight photograph. - Nathan Lyons - (distinguished teacher of photography), Views on nudes by Bill Jay , ISBN: 0240507312 , Page: 109
