Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones. Text by Russell Roberts.
Chris Boot, London, 2004. 160 pp., 150 color and duotone illustrations, 11¾x9½".
At the time of his tragic death in 1972, aged 30, Tony Ray-Jones had already made an indelible mark on photography. Developing his vision in New York and expressing it in his affectionate and ironic studies of the British at leisure, he was almost single-handedly responsible for the birth of contemporary art-photography in Britain. Produced in association with the National Museum of Photography and accompanying its major new touring exhibition, this fresh look at his work introduces the best of his -photographs—previously unpublished, and beautifully reproduced from revealing new prints—with original documents and artefacts from the museum’s Ray-Jones archive. With an introductory essay by Russell Roberts, the National Museum’s director of -photography.
