Media Space: Francis Hodgson on Tony Ray-Jones and Media Space

Photomonitor publishes a thoughtful review of Media Space's opening show from Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr. Hodgson introduces his exhibition review with some considered thoughts on Media Space. Commenting on the opening '[The Science Museum] has at last opened its exhibition space specifically devoted to showing the priceless and largely inaccessible collections which have spent so long doing so little in Bradford at the National Media Museum, the Science Museum’s daughter house there'.  He also poses a question: 'The great national collections of photography now have a jewel box in which to be seen, and first-rate research, touring shows, publications and so on should naturally follow.  Whether they will do so or not is the sixty-four thousand dollar question.'
