Footnotes

  • Roger Mayne was an English photographer, best known for his documentation of the children of Southam Street in West London.

    'Photography involves two main distortions - the simplification into black and white and the seizing of an instant in time. It is this particular mixture of reality and unreality and the photographer's power to select that makes it possible for photography to be an art. Whether it is good art depends on the power and truth of the artist's statement.'
