Kevin Parker  Fine Art 1977 - 80

I was on the Fine Art painting course from 1977 to 1980 & have fond memories of my time in Corsham. The majority of the photos are scanned from old black & white polaroids so the quality isn't great & I apologise in advance to all those whose names I can't recall or any that I get wrong. It does all seem a long time ago now.

The first batch were taken at Beechfield during my first year there.

Second lot were all taken at a garden fete type event held at the back of Corsham court during my first year there.

Third group were all taken at the hostel or just outside. During my time at Corsham I lived at the hostel that was 2 Church Street, much of the time sharing a room with Hugh Hales Took.

Then two more photos taken during my second year at Corsham.

Finally a batch of photos all taken during my final year.

a recentish one of me with pet bantams

... (Amazingstoke or Boringstoke depending on your point of view) where life is good with wife Mandy, stepson Rob & pet bantams Marilyn & Raven. Any creative energies these days tend to be spent photographing the local landscape & wildlife or on various gardening projects.

With fond regards sent to all those old friends I hope are keeping well & happy. Kevin P. XXXXXX
