This is Photobus by Daniel Meadows, homepage of the Free Photographic Omnibus and Digital Stories. Photobus is a journey in photo documentary. It began in the 1970s with still photographs and continues into the present, a time when pictures have discovered the talkies.

ONCE UPON A TIME...

 


...I lived in a double-decker bus, reg. JRR 404, better known as the Free Photographic Omnibus. She was my home, my travelling darkroom and gallery.

For fourteen months in 1973 and '74, we travelled about making a national portrait of the English. We covered 10,000 miles shooting pictures and giving them away. In January 1975 we parted company. But that wasn't the end of the journey...

...I'm still working.

In the UK when we ask: "Where are you from?" we want to know a lot more than just your place of birth.

This story is about the England I come from.

Book. 1973. Documentary Expression and Thirties America: "Social documentary dignifies the usual and levels the extraordinary. Most often its subject is the common man, and when it is not, the subject, however exalted he be, is looked at from the common man's point-of view."
