About Daniel Meadows: Edited Photographs From the 70s and 80s
Daniel Meadows was one of a group of photographers who spearheaded the independent photography movement in the early 1970s. He produced an astonishing record of urban society across Britain, working in a uniquely collaborative way with his subjects. This is the first major survey of his work. Together with recently discovered unpublished work from Meadows’ own archive, this book accumulates his five best known projects: The Shop on Greame Street, 1972, Butlin’s by the Sea, 1972, June Street,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. With an insightful view of the culture and fashions of the age, this book illuminates a remarkable period in British photography when everything seemed new, and gloriously possible. Also, writer and curator Val Williams has written a fascinating text placing Meadows’ work in the context of contemporary culture. Therefore, 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. Therefore an incisive commentator on his times.
