VALERIE LLOYD
The generation with which we are dealing, now in their thirties and forties, is the first in photography to escape the lone responsibilities of being cast in the role of “Master” in a medium which still had some kind of stigma attached to it; a role perpetuated in the generation of Brandt, Cartier-Bresson, Callahan, Evans, Sommer and White. To the next generation came the realization that photography is not “Art” but merely a medium, innocent as such of being anything other than what the user makes it. - Valerie Lloyd - Introduction - [“23 Photographers – 23 Directions” (exhibition catalogue), Walker Art Gallery in association with the Arts Council of Great Britain, Liverpool, 1973, p. 7]
