Tony Ray-Jones & Martin Parr - Only in England

Only in england

Event details

The first exhibition at Media Space shows 50 previously unseen works by British photographer Tony Ray-Jones alongside rarely seen early black and white photographs taken by his fellow countryman Martin Parr. Between 1966 and 1969 Ray-Jones created a body of photographic work documenting English customs and identity. Humorous yet melancholy, these photographs were a departure from anything else being produced at the time. Tragically, in 1972, Ray-Jones died from Leukaemia, aged just 30. His short but prolific career had a lasting influence on the development of British photography. Inspired by him, Martin Parr produced The Non-Conformists, a project shot in black and white that started within two years of Ray-Jones’ death and demonstrates his legacy and influence. Parr was invited to select the works by Ray-Jones for show, from 2700 contact sheets and negatives in the archive.
