Exhibition Tour led by Professor Val Williams, Director of the Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC) at London College of Communication
In 2009, Val Williams began the process of curating a retrospective exhibition of the work of British photographer Daniel Meadows, who had been active in the 1970s and 80s, and who was part of a group of young British photographers who challenged the prevailing system of photojournalism by adopting a more immersive and participatory approach to documentary. Williams’ research, which culminated in a travelling exhibition and major retrospective drew on Meadows archives of photographs and papers, and also looked at the wider cultural context which the Young British photographers operated within.
The tour of the exhibition will encompass the making of the show, the research decisions which were made, the infratrusture of the project and the formation of the partnership between PARC/UAL, Ffotigallery Wales, National Media Museum , Photoworks and the Library of Birmingham.
Val Williams is a writer and curator and UAL Professor of the History and Culture of Photography. She is Director of the Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC) at London College of Communication, an editor of the Journal of Photography & Culture and Director of the Moose on the Loose Biennale of Research.
