NEWS: Exhibition, June Street 1973

Now showing in Church of the Apostle, Miles Platting, Manchester.

Daniel Meadows and Martin Parr are exhibiting their June Street photographs from 1973 in a church hall in Miles Platting, Manchester.  June Street, a road in Salford of just twenty houses, was awaiting demolition and the families who lived there posed for the photographers, who were then final year students at Manchester Polytechnic (now Manchester Metropolitan University), in their front rooms.

The exhibition forms part of the nationwide Jo Cox memorial celebrations 'more in common' and was conceived and facilitated by current Manchester Met. student, David Jones.

Rock 'n' roll writings. Here's one from American Folk in Granta 76. 2001. "But no one is just like anybody else. No one, in fact is even who he or she was ever supposed to be. No one was supposed to step out from their fellows and stand alone to say their piece, to thrill those who stand and listen with the notion that they, too might have a voice, to shame those who stand and listen because they lack the courage to do more than that."
