Martin Parr

We went to the Holburne Museum last night
to hear Martin Parr talk about his various collections and 
memorabilia, always a delight.........

Parr has collections of Maggie Thatcher, 
Osama Bin Laden, Barrack Obama and Saddam Hussein 
memorabilia. A great postcard collection from the golden 
age of pastcards, printed trays, sputnik era objects and 
much much more......
All this resulted in a lively debate from the audience - most 
notably someone posited a theory that Osama Bin Laden and 
Che Guevara are the same person and neither of them are dead.
