Jane Foster did ceramics from 1975-78 and has responded to our request to provide the photos for Mr Bath Academy nude male calendar, that were taken in 1977. She organised this 'shoot' in the stables with her co-producers, Sue McMorran and Helga Staddon. The negatives have long gone (unless Paul Coope can find them) but fortunately five large photos still exist as well as the 35mm neg. contact sheet.
Well that's the good news.
Varying contrast on the contacts means some bleached-out bodies & faces and the reproduction of them is therefore limited in their size & quality. But the gist of what went on, is still there. Naughty stuff with a rocket, animal skin, fire extinguisher (symbols of male potency!), and deckchairs? and newspapers?? and umbrellas??? and teapots???? hhmmm - oh yes, and a shagpile rug!

The photos were never published as a calendar, until now - view thumbnails  - then click the following link to download (& print) your
