      Before Martin Parr retired from leading his popular workshops, he held a final session last summer at the Magnum Print Room in London. Over one weekend, Martin worked with fifteen participants, critiquing and developing their respective bodies of work, their creative practices and their artistic identities. But it was more than just your average educational workshop, as Martin opened up his studio to the group, presenting an overview of his extensive career, sharing practical tips on the editing processes, discussing marketing opportunities and revealing many of his trial-tested tricks of the trade. Lucky for Martin Parr fans, or really anyone looking to learn from one of the world's premiere photographers, the entire experience was taped and is being made available exclusively on Vimeo. The weekend workshop, cut down to just under two hours, is pure Martin Parr -- a uniquely edifying experience from the visual master of the ridiculous, the mundane and the ridiculously mundane.

                      Watch our short film on show in the Only In England exhibition at Media Space in London featuring Martin Parr talking about Tony Ray-Jones. Find out more: http://ow.ly/qVWnC Fascinated by the eccentricities of English social customs, Tony Ray-Jones spent the latter half of the 1960s travelling across England, photographing what he saw as a disappearing way of life. Humorous yet melancholy, these works had a profound influence on photographer Martin Parr, who has now made a new selection including over 50 previously unseen works from the National Media Museum's Ray-Jones archive. Shown alongside The Non-Conformists, Parr's rarely seen work from the 1970s, this selection forms a major new exhibition which demonstrates the close relationships between the work of these two important photographers.
