About Tony Ray-Jones
So, Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Tony Ray-Jones' birth, this is the first comprehensive evaluation of a recognized major photographic talent. Furthermore, Ray-Jones remains a lasting influence on many of today's documentary photographers. His vision of people as they live in the neighbouring worlds of reality is comprehensive and complex.
So, Tony Ray-Jones (7 June 1941 – 13 March 1972) was an English photographer who studied at the London School of Printing, where he concentrated on graphic design. In the early 1960s he obtained a scholarship that enabled him to join Yale University School of Art, on the strength of photographs he had taken in North Africa from a taxi window. His photographs of festivals and leisure activities are full of a somewhat surreal humour. They also show the influence of photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand, Homer Sykes, as well as his own collection of the work of Sir Benjamin Stone. Ray-Jones's work documenting people living on housing estates in Britain was published in an issue on housing in 1970, and were included in his second unsuccessful submission to join Magnum Photos.
