Tony Ray-Jones died when I was one year old. There is no way I can have my usual weekly conversation for l1ghtb1tes with him. I’d love to, but it’ll have to wait. To make up for that, here are two pages from his diary.
If you are in London or can get here before 16 March 2014, have a look at them in the Science Museum, at the Only in England exhibition of photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr. I know, I know, it is not allowed to take pictures there, but when I went there today, I just couldn’t help it. (Especially the first letter reminds me of how I keep looking for photographers to talk to on these pages.)
