DO NOT BEND: THE PHOTOGRAPHIC LIFE OF BILL JAY

Not suitable for Under 15s

Film screening of Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay, produced and directed by Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt.

We are pleased to present a special one night only film screening of Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay to compliment Oriel Colwyn’s new exhibition opening of Bill’s photographers portraits.

Magazine editor, writer, lecturer, photographer, evangelist, mercurial force; Bill Jay was all of these and more.

Bill Jay ignited the fire beneath British photography in 1968 with his magazine Creative Camera and fanned its flames via Album magazine, the ICA, the RPS, and camera clubs and polytechnics across the land before decamping to the University of New Mexico and on to Arizona State University.

His lectures and teaching created a generation of American photographers, teachers, curators and publishers. He wrote twenty books and over four hundred articles, living a life filled with controversy and passion. Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay documents his life through archive images, audio and photographs alongside interviews with his friends, colleagues and family including Martin Parr, David Hurn, Homer Sykes, Ralph Gibson, Paul Hill, Brian Griffin, Daniel Meadows, Alex Webb, John Benton-Harris, Sue Davis, and Mary V. Swanson amongst others.

Following the film screening, co-producers Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt will host a discussion on Bill Jay’s impact on the world of photography and share their experience of producing the film with limited budget and resources.

6.30pm - 7.30pm: Exhibition opening of Do Not Bend: Bill Jay’s Photographers Portraits.
7.30pm – 9.00pm: Film screening of Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay, produced and directed by Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt.
9:00pm – 9.30pm: Interval
9.30pm – 10.30pm: Discussion / Q&A with Do Not Bend film co-producers Grant Scott and Tim Pellatt.
