Stockport Gypsies 1971 - Daniel Meadows

The first book I will publish in 2015, this Thursday, is Stockport Gypsies 1971 by Daniel Meadows. It's the the first in a series of eight books I'm publishing with Daniel. The books accompany the release of one of his movies; each offering an insight into a part of his archive which is held, in its entirety, by the Library of Birmingham. There are 40 movies in total, I will make a post here as each is released. The eight books will be printed as editions of 150-200 including a very limited boxed set (ed/50) of all eight, and including a DVD of the eight corresponding movies.

So here is this week's movie from Daniel:

This week Daniel Meadows updated his movie stream on Vimeo with 'Talking Picture no. 1: Polyfoto'. Back to the beginning...

This method of taking a photograph, in a booth much like a passport photo strikes me as something that could do well today. Perhaps a revival of the Polyfoto booth? Someone like Lomography could surely do that. Surprisingly, there seems to be little information online regarding Polyfoto. Here are a couple of links that are available: Company info site Flickr Polyfoto pool Photo Detective

'Talking Picture no. 1: Polyfoto' is the sixth release in a series of 40 weekly releases.
