Chick Chalmers

In 1980 Chick was awarded a Scottish Arts Council grant as part of an exchange programme to visit the United States to take photographs, touring almost every state over a nine month period and doing over 30,000 miles in an ancient VW camper van. He returned with a remarkable body of work a small part of which was exhibited just the once at the Stills gallery, Edinburgh in 1982. Chick sadly passed away in 1998.
