Daniel Meadows describes himself as a ‘Documentarist’ who has spent a life-time ‘recording British society, challenging the status quo by working in a collaborative way to capture extraordinary aspects of ordinary life, principally through photography but also with audio recordings and short movies.’
His journey in the photo documentary genre began in the 1970’s with legendary projects such as Free Photographic Omnibus (1973-74) during which Meadows travelled around the North of England in a double-decker bus which became his home, travelling dark-room and gallery combined.
Field Editions is proud to present 4 original, single prints from the Free Photographic Omnibus project – taken during a visit to Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria UK. Meadows has generously donated these iconic images in support of Impressions Gallery, Bradford and future talent in Northern photography.
Born in Gloucestershire, England in 1952, Meadows studied at Manchester Polytechnic 1970-73. Photography projects from that time include The Shop on Greame Street in Moss Side (1972), also two collaborations with fellow student Martin Parr: Butlin’s by the Sea in Yorkshire (1972) and June Street in Salford (1973).
Solo exhibitions include The Free Photographic Omnibus at Museum of Modern Art Oxford (1974); Living Like This at the Intitute of Contemporary Art, London (1975); Suberbia at The Photographer’s Gallery London, (1987); National Portraits: Now and Then at the Irish Gallery of Photography, Dublin (2000) and Daniel Meadows: Early Photographic Works at The National media Museum Bradford ( 2011-’12).
Group shows include Photographs of Butlin’s Filey at Impressions Gallery, Bradford (1972);Serpentine Photography 73, Serpentine Gallery London (1973); How We Are: Photographing Britain from the 1840s to the Present at Tate Britain (2007); The Other Britain Revisited: Photographs from New Society, at The V&A London (2010); A Record of England, MAC, Birmingham,( 2011).
Meadows has works in several private and public collections, including the V & A London and Birmingham Central Library. For many years he was a teacher of photography and has also lectured widely about photography and digital storytelling.
Meadows currently lives and works in Wales.
