We’re a big fan of this exhibition at the Walker – a funny, occasionally melancholy, trek through Tony Ray-Jones’ wonderful black and white images from the 1970s onwards. Selected by Martin Parr, himself an acclaimed snapper and clearly influenced by the late photographer, Ray-Jones’ pictures explore a sense of quirky, comfortingly odd Britishness. Whatever that might be. Ray-Jones died in 1972 when he was just 30, but this 100-image-strong exhibition shows what an astonishing, focused body of work he accumulated during his short life. Clearly curated with a lot of love, we’re pretty sure you’ll adore it too.
