Bodleian 500 print project, 1971-2020


  • How to

Comprises photographic prints selected by Meadows from eighteen of his work projects as a master selection self-termed 'the Bodleian 500'. Even though some of the images exist elsewhere in various working photographic formats in the Archive of Daniel Meadows, these photographic prints are exhibition quality and are as Meadows intends the images to be seen. All of the physical prints are 10" x 8" in dimension, and act as guide prints for the digitised photographs which also form part of this series.

The series also comprises a high resolution Tagged Image File Format (.tif) scan and low resolution Joint Photographic Experts Group (.jpg) scan of every photographic image. There also features some additional born-digital video content created after Meadows' initial donation of material.

Each photograph includes a caption written by Daniel Meadows.
