"The question: Is photography art? was answered long ago. But, that query is pertinent here today because the search for the answer was going on just as George Midgley was taking up what was to be the avocation of a lifetime. For, whether he recognized that designation or not, George was a Pictorialist. I have never heard him use that word; the way he described his category of expertise was to say that he preferred 'a control process.'"
