Talk: Photographer Talk: Daniel Meadows

The Mining Institute

We are delighted to announce that Daniel Meadows will be visiting us in the new year to deliver the next of NEPN’s photographers talks on Monday 16 January at 18.30 at the Mining Institute, Newcastle upon Tyne.

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.

The highly-acclaimed exhibition, Daniel Meadows: Early Photographic Works is showing at The National Media Museum Bradford until 19 February 2012.   The exhibition features five of his best known projects including: The Shop on Greame Street, 1972; Butlin’s by the Sea, 1972; June Street, Salford, 1973; Nattering in Paradise, 1984 and The Free Photographic Omnibus 1973-74, which saw Meadows on an extraordinary journey, photographing the English as he travelled the country in a double-decker bus.

Meadows is a Lecturer in photography and participatory media at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University. From 2001-2006 he was Creative Director of the pioneering digital storytelling project Capture Wales. He was awarded a PhD in 2005.

The talk will be followed by refreshments and informal discussion in the Institute’s Library.
