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.

This story is about the England I come from.

Digital Story. 1991. I Photograph to Remember. First published as an interactive CD-ROM, this intensely moving story about Meyer's parents in old age is now available for iPod download from his ZoneZero website. I first saw it at Impressions Gallery, York, in the summer of 1994. Aside from its length (35 minutes) it is, in every other respect, a "Digital Story", just like the Capture Wales stories we started making in 2001.
