This work was first exhibited as part of Butlin's by the Sea by Daniel Meadows and Martin Parr, the opening show at Impressions Galley, York, in November 1972, curated by Andrew Sproxton and Val Williams. It took another thirty-nine years for the work to be published: in the Financial Times Magazinepp.28-33, 3-4 September 2011.

Butlin's 1972

r/t: 4 min, 41 sec.

 

In the summer of 1972 Martin Parr and I worked as "walkie" photographers at Butlin’s Filey in Yorkshire. This film, by Shehani Fernando for the Guardian's My Best Shot feature, tells how some colour pictures I took there were recently 'discovered'.

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.
