Tony Ray-Jones (UK)
The English
Tony Ray Jones

Tony Ray-Jones studied at the London School of Printing, before obtaining a scholarship in the early 1960s, which enabled him to join Yale University School of Art. He returned to Britain in late 1965, where he began to survey the English at leisure, trying to extensively document the way of life of the English ‘before it became too Americanised’. His photographs of festivals and leisure activities are full of a somewhat surreal humour and show the influence of photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand and Homer Sykes

Adam Patterson (Northern Ireland) and Dana Popa (Romania)
The Return Journey
David Falla Gallery, Trinity Square, St Peter Port

An exhibition of two emerging photographic talents, who each return to their respective homelands.

Post-communist Romania is the subject, and home, of Dana Popa and her project Our Father Ceausescu. She focuses on a generation who have lived the majority of their existence in a capitalism system, as they struggle with the desire to leave Romania behind while conforming to western ideals of fashion and beauty. Returning to Northern Ireland, Adam Patterson’s project Men and my Daddy, confronts a generation of paramilitary members struggling to find purpose to their lives after the Troubles. Focusing in particular on the Ulster Defence Association, Patterson tells the stories of these men’s pasts through borrowed photographs and writings, supplemented with anecdotes of his own childhood.

Exhibition curated by FOTO8 Magazine.
