Young children in fancy dress holding up umbrellas at the Chatham May Queen Festival, Kent. Photograph by Tony Ray-Jones (1941-1972) who created most of his images of the British at work and leisure between 1966 and 1969. Travelling around Britain, he recorded the unguarded moments of people from all sections of British society with a distinctive and highly individual style, combining both sadness and humour.
