AboutFOTONOW presents Cameras in the Community,
featuring: Daniel Meadows, Camper Obscura,
Laundrette Residencies and South West Graduate
FOTONOW is a Plymouth based photographic arts
organisation with a socially-driven agenda. The
exhibition at Plymouth Arts Centre offers four
threads, all attached to the notion of community
and contemporary photographic practice.
Camper Obscura is a fantastic mobile camera
obscura sited in a camper van, travelling to
residents around Plymouth, and supported by
Devonport Regeneration Community Partnership.
This is inspired by a project undertaken by artist
Daniel Meadows in the 1970s, where he toured the
UK in a double decker bus making portraits of the
people he met. This nationally significant work will
be presented in the exhibition.
The exhibition also includes documentation of a
project commissioned by FOTONOW in several
laundrettes across Plymouth.
Finally, FOTONOW will bring the six graduate artists
who exhibited in London as part of the South West
Graduate Photography Prize back to the city.
