Reportage: Research: Tony Ray-Jones

An example of Jones’ work

Tony Ray-Jones, much like Martin Parr, could be described as an anthropological photographer with a distinct interest in the British way of life. He mainly operated in the 1960s before he unexpectedly died from illness. I suspect he’s been presented to us as a another example of the documentative  photographer. I don’t think his work was received in the same way it would be now as this approach  to photography (the cultural archive) has become more accepted over the last few decades.

Jones’ work

Photography for me is a lot like graphic design. I don’t have the tools to judge it objectively in terms of it’s quality. Jones’ approach to photography could be a good starting place to consider how to compose any imagery I wish to use. We shall see. Onwards.
