US Camera (pull-out), 1954

In the US Camera Annual of 1954, Carter Jones was selected to showcase a series of 8 photographs in rare pull-out section of the publication. This was a great honor and only a few photographers in the history of the annual had ever been given a similar opportunity. The series created while the artist lived in Paris is reproduced in its entirety below.

    2 Propping his Rollei on an improvised support of books, Jones shot from a window 1/200 second, f/8 to keep the grillwork from losing definition. The grillwork adds to the sense of depth and the Sunday quietude.

    7 The day’s accounting. Jones, relentless, keeps shooting – not unselectively or for the sake of quantity but for as long as he sees something that moves him. For, above all, the photographer is “a creature of feeling.”
