The great Daniel Meadows is a legend of British photography. He’s been capturing what caught his eye for the past 50 years, documenting, creating a legacy. “We are truly honored to have been gifted his archive which will be a major resource for scholars and an inspiration for photographers.,” Richard Ovenden, Bodley’s librarian stated. Meadows started with his free portrait studio in Manchester in 1972. He traveled across the country in a converted double-decker bus, taking portraits in many cities. 25 years later, the reunion was ahead. Before and after photos, the 1970’s and 1990’s next to each other. Mothers, fathers, children, now grandparents and adults, and in some heartbreaking cases some people were missing in later photos as they’ve passed on.
