Now and Then Portraits from the Free Photographic Omnibus, 1974 and 1995-2000
In the 1990s, during the tour of Val Williams's exhibition National Portraits, Photographs from the 1970s by Daniel Meadows, there was a revival of interest in the journey I had made around England in the Free Photographic Omnibus. I found I wasn't alone in being curious to know what, in the intervening decades, had happened in the lives of those I'd photographed. I decided to go looking for some of them.
