I am a Documentarist.
I have spent a lifetime 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.
— Daniel Meadows

Studying photography alongside Martin Parr at Manchester Polytechnic in the early 1970's, Daniel Meadows has remained passionate about social documentary photography, education and storytelling ever since. His photography archive, held in the Library of Birmingham, is an important record of British society through the 1970's and 80's.

Kick back and listen to our full conversation with Daniel below.

Rwy’n berson dogfen.
Rwy ‘di treulio fy mywyd yn cofnodi’r gymdeithas Brydeinig, herio’r ‘status quo’ ac yn gweithio ar bob agwedd o fywyd cyffredin yn bennaf trwy ffotograffiaeth ond hefyd trwy sain a ffilmiau byr.
— Daniel Meadows

Fe astudiodd Daniel Meadows law yn llaw a Martin Parr ym mholytechnig Manceinion yn y '70 cynnar. Mae e wedi dal yn ddryw yw waith fel ffotograffydd dogfennol cymdeithasol, addysg a'i gariad o adrodd stori

Cedwi'r ei archif personol yn llyfrgell Birmingham ac mae'n record bwysig o fywyd cymdeithasol Prydain yn y '70au a'r '80au.
