Talks 2011: Daniel Meadows
8 December 2011
Daniel Meadows' career as a documentary photographer, oral historian and teacher spans four decades and he is recognised as a prime-mover in an important group of photographers who spear-headed the 1970s independent photography movement including Martin Parr, Brian Griffin and Peter Fraser.
His practice is complex, passionate and sometimes deeply autobiographical. Working in a uniquely collaborative way with his subjects, Meadows produced an astonishing record of urban society across Britain.
Meadows practice is remarkable, a powerful and engaging documentarist his work shows him an incisive commentator on his times.
Following the talk, Daniel will be signing copies of our latest publication, Daniel Meadows: Edited Photographs from the 70s and 80s written by Val Williams and accompanying the much acclaimed exhibition, Daniel Meadows: Early Photographic Works showing at The National Media Museum Bradford until 19 February 2012.
