Daniel Meadows: Edited Photographs from the 70s and 80s
20 September 2011
Together with recently discovered unpublished work from Meadows’ own archive, this book presents his five best known projects: The Shop on Greame Street, 1972, Butlin's by the Sea, 1972, June Street, Salford, 1973, The Free Photographic Omnibus 1973-74, and Nattering in Paradise, 1984.
Illuminating a remarkable period in British photography when everything seemed new, and gloriously possible, writer and curator Val Williams has written a fascinating text that places Meadows’ work in the context of contemporary culture. From the remarkable free photographic studio on Greame Street in Moss Side to his study of suburbia, Meadows emerges as a powerful and engaging documentarist and an incisive commentator on his times.
Published to accompany the exhibition Daniel Meadows: Early Photographic Work, curated by Val Williams, showing at the National Media Museum from 30 September 2011 to 19 February 2012 and touring to Ffotogallery, Cardiff; Birmingham Central Library, and the London College of Communication.
Published in association with Photography and the Archive Research Centre, University of the Arts London, in partnership with National Media Museum, Bradford, Ffotogallery, Cardiff and Birmingham Central Library Gallery.
