The world is a poorer place without him

Jay recorded the sound for a piece we made on the Twic Olympics in what is now South Sudan. I can’t quite remember the date of the project, but I think it was around 2010/11. It was one of our early experiments with audio slideshows to tell stories in a different way and I think Jay delivered fabulously on the brief from us. I remember Jay smiling away as we talked about the project, happy to deal with the ambiguity that always comes with a new project and the ever-present challenges of documenting work in a developing country. I only met him a few times but his professionalism, humility and warm heart stick in my memory. The world is a poorer place without him.
