Robin Hammond – an eye for injustice

RobinHammondPortrait

Wilton boy, Robin Hammond’s commitment to human rights photography has lead him to win many coveted awards for his work.

In this interview we talk to Robin about how he ended up in African prisons to show us what is happening when the support system for people with mental disability fails post war. He also talks about his photo shoot ” the Dark side of Denim” which showed the environmental effects that denim production had on a small African village. And what he saw in Tuvalu as the people on this beautiful island start to drown under the effects of climate change.

Robin was here to be inducted into the Massey Creative Hall of Fame, as well as to accompany the World Press exhibition featuring his award winning photographs from the “Condemned” series and to see his Mum and Dad.

The World Press exhibition is on at the NZ Portrait Gallery, Shed 11 until September 21st.
