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.
Parr 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 major new exhibition, which demonstrates the close relationships between the work of these two important photographers.
