Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr

Available to hire from August 2014

Fascinated by the eccentricities of English social customs, Tony Ray-Jones spent the latter half of the 1960s travelling across England, photographing what he saw as a disappearing way of life.

Humorous yet melancholy, these works had a profound influence on photographer Martin Parr, who has now made a new selection including over 50 previously unseen works from the National Media Museum’s Ray-Jones archive. Shown alongside The Non-Conformists, Parr’s rarely seen work from the 1970s, this selection forms a new touring exhibition which demonstrates the close relationships between the works of these two important photographers.

To host the exhibition you will need:

  • Approximately 500 square metres of indoor display space but size can be adjusted
  • Storage for transport crates
  • Staff and equipment to assist with installation and dismantling
  • Gallery staff or volunteers during operating hours
