About The Artwork

Photography: Color, Digital, Archival Paper on Dibond Archival Giclée Print mounted on strong Dibond composite backing with an Aluminium Subframe - this will ensure the artwork never warps. Certificate of Authenticity supplied with the artwork. Hammond’s photographic artworks connect the viewer with something essential about the world around us; something that is palpably there if we just take the time to look for it. In Organic Origins the complexity and richness of nature is revealed element by element, much as the viewer, in the course of a walk through a rural landscape, might scan a myriad of long views or linger on close-up details. In these large-scale works, Hammond’s intention is to explore the way we look at nature. Rather than use a single shot, Keith uses a grid system that investigates each landscape from multiple viewpoints. Hammond then incorporates these smaller images and details into each finished image, making works that are more than the sum of their parts – and which reward repeated viewing. “Keith forms subtle and profound connections with the landscapes he photographs, composing immersive images from a diversity of light, tones, forms and textures. He puts me in the places he’s been, attuned to the landscape’s spirit: the structures, textures and atmosphere that make them so compelling.” Ed Ikin, Head of Wakehurst Landscape and Horticulture Royal Botanic Gardens Kew “I have had a passion for nature since I was very young. If you are similarly attracted and excited by the changing colours and wondrous shapes of nature, you will enjoy Keith’s work; he is a remarkable photographer.” Dame Judi Dench, CH, DBE “We don’t look at a magnificent tree, a shimmering leaf, or a landscape for just a split second, as the camera would have us believe. We take our time, our eyes wander all over the scene, we take it all in; the leaves shake in the wind, the water ripples, the clouds move, the light changes. Nothing is static.”

Born in 1952 Hammond lives in London and has been a photographer since aged 16 when he bought his first Rollieflex. Hammond went on to build a successful career in photography, developing a company with 30 photographers which serviced the then-thriving catalogue and print-publications industry. For many years his company housed the largest commercial photographic studio complex in Europe. In 1998 and 1999 Hammond was invited to judge the John Kobal Portrait Award (now Taylor Wessing) exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery, London. Hammond has constantly photographed personal and non-commercial work throughout his working life but like celebrated photographer Vivian Maier, had never felt a compelling desire to exhibit. Until now. Hammond’s personal work is about looking at the world around him. It is about observation. His work is not constrained by obvious categorization. In the landscape collage series ‘Organic Origins’ exhibited in London just before the pandemic took hold, Hammond has explored the way we look at nature and how we often overlook the things we take for granted. After a two-day workshop in Bradford with David Hockney in 1986 Hammond embraced the photographic joiner which Hockney made so famous, as this challenged the perception that the camera showed ‘the truth’. In fact, as Hockney demonstrated in his joiners, the traditional photograph only shows one frozen moment and from just one perspective. In Organic Origins, Hammond has explored nature not just from one fixed viewpoint or one moment in time. His work encourages us to explore each individual element just as we would in a real-world environment. We don’t look at a beautiful tree or a landscape for just a split second. We take our time, our eyes wander all over the scene, we take it all in; the leaves shake in the wind, the waters ripple, the clouds move, the light changes, nothing is static. It might take a few seconds or several minutes - this is the real experience. It doesn’t happen in a 60th of a second. In these works, each square is an individual photograph assembled to make a more complete viewing experience. Hammond has then digitally manipulated the works to bring out detail which is unattainable within the normal colour spectrum thus producing a harmonic coexistence between reality and abstraction.
