Tony Ray-Jones

Tony Ray-Jones is one of the photographers whose work I was looking at leading up to assignment 3.  I like the humorous and affectionate approach he used towards his subjects. 356 more words

Martin Parr: Chronicler of our age?

Introduction

The first time I looked at images of Martin Parr I couldn’t understand why this photographer was so revered. The images did not seem to really have any meaning, the content was akin to that of a photos taken on a holiday at a British seaside resort, the saturated colours made them look even more amateurish.   2,022 more words
