Only in England

Legendary photographer and Teacake favourite, Martin Parr has collaborated with the late Tony Ray - Jones for a special exhibition at the Science Museum in London. 
Fascinated by the 'eccentricities of English social customs', Ray - Jones travelled around England in the late 1960's 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 Ray-Jones archive' (sciencemuseum.org.uk).  
With the pieces shown alongside Parr's 'The Non-Conformists' (his rarely seen work from the 1970's) this exhibition demonstrates the close relationship between these two very important photographers.  
Only in England can be seen at the Science Museum from 21st September 2013 until 16th March 2014. Make sure you check it out.
