We spent a wonderful morning with Daniel Meadows discussing the influence of photographer, lecturer, writer and legendary magazine editor Bill Jay on his work and career for our film project Do Not Bend: The Photographic Life of Bill Jay. Daniel was in the same class as Martin Parr at Manchester Polytechnic where Bill gave a talk in 1971 that influenced both Daniel and Martin in the ways in which they viewed photography.

Daniel spoke to us about that lecture as well as his proof reading of Bill and David Hurn’s On Being a Photographer, fisherman’s vests and getting over excited when meeting Bill in 1980 amongst other Bill related things.
