“I was always encouraged to push my techniques in terms of what photography can be and examine the boundaries of it.”
Felicity Hammond (b. 1988, UK) is a London-based artist who works across photography and installation. Fascinated by political contradictions within urban landscapes and natural sites of human intervention, her work explores construction sites and obsolete built environments. Propelled by the precariousness she senses in our post-industrial economy, she seeks to distil everyday detritus into a sense of longing. Through her luminous prints and videos, she finds potent allegory in subjects such as abandoned power stations and construction equipment. In specific works Hammond photographs digitally manipulated images from property developers’ billboards and brochures, and prints them directly onto acrylic sheets which are then shaped into unique sculptural objects, locating her work in the collision of digital and physical formats. Hammond graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Photography in 2014 and is the recipient of numerous awards, such as the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award 2016.
