In partnership with the Manchester School of Art Redeye presents In Conversation With Daniel Meadows on the 15th June. This will be a rare opportunity to hear Daniel speak about his career and work ahead of his exhibition Separate and Together – bringing June Street to Miles Platting opening on the 16th March.
Who is it for?
This event is for anyone who is interested in Daniel's work, or in photography generally. Early booking recommended.
Daniel Meadows has spent a lifetime recording British society, challenging the status quo by working in a collaborative way to capture extraordinary aspects of ordinary life through pictures, audio recordings and short movies. He is best known for his 1973-74 journey around England in the Free Photographic Omnibus when he travelled 10,000 miles in a converted double-decker and made 958 portraits in "free studio" sessions in 22 different British towns and cities.
Daniel's work has been exhibited widely both in the UK and on the continent of Europe. Born in Gloucestershire, England, in 1952 Daniel 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).
Daniel taught documentary photography with David Hurn in Newport (1983-94); photojournalism (1994-2001) and digital storytelling (2000-2012) at Cardiff School of Journalism, Media & Cultural Studies. In 2002 Daniel won a BAFTA Cymru for the digital storytelling project Capture Wales. Daniel is visiting Manchester to open a community-based exhibition of the June Street photographs taken in 1973 with Martin Parr. The June Street pictures were taken just before the street was demolished. They are a remarkable record of a “real” street. The exhibition Separate and Together – bringing June Street to Miles Platting can be seen at Miles Platting St, M40 7BJ from 16th - 22nd June 10.30 - 15:30. Daniel will open the exhibition on the 16th at a special event beginning at 11.00.
This event takes place on 15th June 2017 from 17:30 until 19:00. Doors open at 17:00.
This event takes place in the Geoffrey Manton Building, All Saints Campus, Oxford Road, Manchester, M15 6BH. The venue is fully accessible.
