‘Meat Joy’, New York, 1964.

Gelatin silver print. A photograph by Tony Ray-Jones, taken at a performance art piece or 'happening' by Carolee Schneeman, performed in Judson Memorial Church in November 1964. It featured near-naked participants, raw fish, chickens, sausages, wet paint, transparent plastic, rope brushes and scrap paper. Schneeman described it as 'excessive, indulgent, a celebration of flesh as material'. Tony Ray-Jones moved to America in 1962 where he studied for his postgraduate diploma and met the influential picture editor Alexey Brodovitch. During his time in New York, Ray-Jones photographed the experimental art scene enthusiastically. He died from leukaemia in 1972, aged just 30, but his work has influenced a new generation of British photographers.
