In the early 1970s Daniel Meadows embarked on a journey to create a social snapshot of Britain, breaking with photography tradition and infusing the medium with new energies and ways of seeing. Meadows’ resulting work displays complexity and passion and confers a personal and sometimes deeply autobiographical imprint. This exhibition and the accompanying Photoworks publication is the product of research by Professor Val Williams as part of an ongoing study into British photography of 1970s and 1980s at the University of the Arts, London. Together Val Williams and Daniel Meadows have brought to light the photographer’s incredible archive of prints and negatives, along with ephemera and audio recordings. They have unearthed unpublished and sometimes forgotten treasures which add to a dramatic, moving and empathetic depiction of a recognisable, yet increasingly alien era.
The project is originated by Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC) in partnership with Ffotogallery, National Media Museum, Birmingham Library and Archive Services, University of the Arts London and Photoworks UK.
