[1941 – 1972] English photographer

Photography can be a mirror and reflect life as it is, but I also think it is possible to walk, like Alice, through a looking glass and find another kind of world with the camera. - Tony Ray-Jones , Photography Year 1973, LIFE Library of Photography by Time Life (Editor) , Page: 220
I'm concerned with pushing images to the edge of sanity. - Tony Ray-Jones
Photography for me is an exciting and personal way of reacting to and commenting on one’s environment and I feel that it is perhaps a great pity that more people don’t consider it as a medium of self-expression instead of selling themselves to the commercial world of journalism and advertising. - Tony Ray-Jones
