Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr demonstrates, "the close relationships between the work of these two important photographers" by showcasing over 50 unseen images from the National Media Museum's Ray-Jones archive chosen by Martin Parr alongside The Non-Conformists, a selection of rarely seen Parr images from the 70s. 

English born photographer, Tony Ray-Jones graduated from Yale University School of Art in 1964 and on returning to England travelled across the country capturing, "what he saw as a disappearing way of life" - English eccentricities and social customs. Images which struck a chord with Martin Parr and became a great influence on his work. 

This exhibition runs until the 16 March 2014 at the Science Museum, London.
