The exhibition, the first in London showcasing British photographer Tony Ray-Jones, opened on Saturday as part of major refurbishment works in the space.
The exhibition also shows works by Martin Parr, who followed on from Ray-Jones’ work on cataloguing British life. Parr was asked by the National Media Museum to scour their archives of Ray-Jones’ work. He selected unfamiliar and previously unexhibited pieces for the gallery.
The gallery is an exciting new space in London, with the potential to show case major new works, and DHA are very pleased to be part of it. In the spirit of this, the gallery uses LED lighting and daylight harvesting to reduce the energy footprint.
Only in England runs until 16th of March 2014 in London and then from the 22nd of March until the 29th of June in Bradford.
