This is the second in the series 'From Robert’s' selected from material collected by Val Williams from Robert Mucci's shop, 'Robert's Rummage' in Hastings, over the last six years.

For 'Postcards from Robert's', 400 cards have been selected from the thousands on sale, using themes such as 'Couples in the Landscape', 'People on their Own in the Countryside' , 'The Road through the Mountains', 'Cable Cars', 'The Alpine Village' , 'Fountains', 'The Bay' and 'Waterfalls'. A selection has been enlarged.

In the summer of 2014, Robin Christian also made 'From Robert's', a short film about Robert Mucci and his shop, which will be screened during the exhibition at PARC and also at the Electric Palace Cinema in Hastings, as part of PhotoHastings, 2014.

Val and Robin will give a short talk about their work on the project at around 5pm.

Bring a postcard, write your name on the back and make a new archive. Refreshments will be provided.
