Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The archive of British photographer Daniel Meadows was acquired by the Bodleian Library in March 2018. It had been at the Library of Birmingham from 2014-2018. Northern Narratives, working in partnership with Daniel Meadows and The Bodleian Library, is developing an exhibition drawn from Meadows' substantial archive which will tour to a number of international galleries throughout 2020-21. Dates and venues will be announced in Autumn 2019. The exhibition will be supported by a new book published by the library.
Meadows' archive was assembled over nearly five decades. It contains his life's work — all the negatives and contact sheets associated with his photo-documentary work also a great many contextualising documents including posters, magazines, books, receipts, newsletters, notebooks, diaries, audio tapes, digital stories, his PhD document and research material, and much correspondence besides. It is housed in the Bodleian's Weston Library and at the time of writing accessioning is currently underway with its catalogue being mapped onto the Bodleian's own so that, from 2019, it can be made available online.
