The Martin Parr Foundation have put together a new book and exhibition to celebrate the contribution that photographer Tony Ray-Jones made to British documentary photography. 

Born in 1941 in Wells, Somerset, Tony Ray-Jones won a scholarship to Yale University in the United States at just 19, where he ended up studying alongside fellow students including Robert Frank, Irving Penn and Garry Winogrand. In 1966, he returned to England and travelled around the country in a VW camper van to document English social customs and what he saw as a disappearing way of life.
