This show has two components. First is a series of photographs Meadows made between 1973 and 1974 in the English regions. Meadows travelled to Barrow in Furness, Hartlepool and Southampton on a double-decker bus that served as his darkroom and accommodation. He named this experiment the Free Photographic Omnibus. Second is Meadows’ attempt to photograph his subjects again two decades later. He was photographing people in their own environment and on their own terms.
