Fine Art Course students :Loughborough Art College 1970-73.
These images were taken primarily as source material for my paintings , but I also felt the need to document what was going on in this rather weird and wacky world of the Art College . I suppose my need to document things was evident even then. These are by no means great photos technically, but they are the only record I have of that part of my life and I would dearly love to know what has happened to these folks , as they were a great bunch. Anyone with any idea of where they might live now , let me know, I'd like to know if they are still breathing and what directions their lives have taken .

          Dave Gregory - ( r) and I, shot  in the grounds of an abandoned mansion one wild and wacky pm in Loughborough. 

I now know that Dave is still alive and well, he is a fabulous character. .  

He was of Maltese origin ,his father had diplomatic connections and resided in Cheltenham

      Brian Smith the younger doing some very silly things with two bricks outside a carpark in Leicester. He used to appropriate garden gnomes when he lived in East Anglia , but he soon outgrew this practice in favour of rubbing bricks together in the vain hope of starting a campfire in a pile of sand .

Last heard of running a farm in West Wales. 


  Paddy Smith acting very strangely in our palatial studio. 

Attended public school in Leamington Spa. 
His parents ran a pub in Morton on the Marsh, last heard of living in a cottage down that way . Paddy was one in a million. One in a million of what I cannot say but definitely unique .

An icon of the Scooter set in the 80s and beyond, Paddy is now frightening the French in a medieval barn and rescuing neglected gallic dogs . Good on yer Smiffy !
