New Wave 10: Photomobile

David Eaton is one of three who look after Photomobile, an itinerant 'Mobile Photographic Unit' currently parked in Cheshire on the forecourt of the factory of Harman Express (home to Ilford, Kentmere and Harman Photo products). The oldest surviving British photographic supplier made a nice backdrop to an interview about the so-called New Wave of photography.

The unit was originally purchased by the Liverpool based charity Aware Photographic Arts and passed to Redeye, the North West photography network, in 2006 when the charity wound up its activities. Subsequently the Photomobile was relaunched as an independent initiative, helped by a successful Arts Council Grant and the dedication of a the small team who keep it running to this day. We met on a snowy day in January. Despite the bad weather, and similarly bleak economic climate, David was keen to tell a positive story of Photomobile at a point when the organisation seems to be finding its identity.     Laura Guy
