Details

Touring exhibition from the Science Museum/National Media Museum of photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr.

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 30 previously unseen works from the National Science and Media Museum’s Ray-Jones archive. Shown alongside The Non-Conformists (Parr’s rarely seen work from the 1970s), this selection demonstrates the close relationships between the work of these two important photographers.

To coincide with the exhibition, we’ll also be showing some archive images from the Great Yarmouth collections, as well as inviting local photographers to submit their own images inspired by the theme ‘Only in the East’.
