NEWS: June Street, Salford, 1973


Martin Parr: Return to Manchester includes June Street, Salford 1973, a collaborative project with Daniel Meadows

Martin Parr's huge new exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery features work from the early 'seventies done while studying photography at Manchester Polytechnic, including June Street, Salford 1973, made in conjunction with fellow student Daniel Meadows.

June Street in Salford, twenty houses awaiting demolition, had been used in the filming of ITV’s Coronation Street. June street was alive on TV, but in reality it was about to be erased from the map. The photography students were curious: which version was the true version?

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

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."
