Tony Ray Jones is a photographer famous for his black and white work. Yet like many great practioneers he was also not bad at color either.
His work from 1962-65 has been collected in the book ’American Color’. The shots are mainly taken in New York and remind me of Saul Leiter’s early color work.
Apparently when he returned to his native England he switched to shooting exclusively in black and white saying,
‘I found everything so grey that I didn’t see the point in shooting in color.’
