Anna Ray-Jones in conversation with Greg Hobson

Curator of photographs at the National Media Museum, Bradford, Greg Hobson talks to Anna Ray Jones about her late husband Tony Ray-Jones most iconic photographs.
Tony Ray Jones work was displayed at Media Space at the Science Museum in 2013/14. 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 major new exhibition which demonstrates the close relationships between the work of these two important photographers.
