Media Space is a new photography and art gallery on the second floor of the Science Museum in London. It is a collaboration between the Science Museum and the National Media Museum in Bradford, home of the National Photography Collection.
The inaugural exhibition is Only in England with photographs by Martin Parr and the late Tony Ray-Jones.
The above picture – Beachy Head boat trip – was taken by Ray-Jones in 1967 and shows that he had a keen eye for the commonplace eccentricities of the English.
