John Willie’s Women In Bondage – Harmony Concepts 

March 1993  (48 Pages)

Okay, we’ve probably all heard it, or said it, or at least silently nurtured the heretical thought – there have been plenty of better rope-tiers than the great John Willie. He was simply not in the same league as Carl McGuire or Jay Edwards when it comes to the rigorous and stylish application of rope. Nor did he strive for a graphic appeal in his photography that could remotely considered artistic: most of his work was eminently snapshot style.
But these technical shortcomings are completely insignificant. John Willie is a classic example of spirit and attitude overshadowing material flaws. If his photography was snapshot quality, so did it benefit from the immediacy and vividness of the best snapshots or even the best journalistic photography. And that’s undoubtedly what Willie wanted to convey, and so often did convey – a stirring realism that counterpointed his unparalleled sense of fantasy.

Fine – As near to a new copy as you are going to get, looks like it’s just been lifted of the newsagents shelf.
