Science Museum Media Space

2013

The inaugural exhibition at London’s Media Space displayed over 100 works by photographer Tony Ray-Jones alongside 50 rarely before seen black and white images by Magnum photographer and long-time John Jones client Martin Parr.

Our team were delighted to design a simple presentation solution to display and preserve the collection to a museum quality. Each photographic print has been mounted into place using transparent photo corners and acid free 100% cotton mount board, selected to reduce the risk of staining and yellowing seen in poor quality frames. Each poplar wood frame design has been cut, sanded and joined by skilled craftspeople in our London workshops before being either stained with a dark oak tint or sprayed to a crisp, black finish. Strong frame backings produced from acid free meridian board will protect the photographs from knocks and bumps, whilst specialist fillets ensure the glazing is raised a safe distance away from the surface of the artwork. Our frame glazing is ‘water white’ and contains a low glare coating to enhance the viewing experience.

‘It has been an absolute pleasure to work with John Jones. Their team have been incredibly helpful throughout the whole process and the frames for the exhibition are beautiful. Their care for each of our works and their co-operation to carry out condition checking was exceptional; I cannot recommend them enough!’ Alice Calloway, Science Museum
