Dr. Anne Hammond, a photographic historian for many years, has been a Visiting Research Fellow in Photography at the CFPR, and has pursued research projects that interpret the work of major photographers, and that shed light on the relationship between the history and aesthetic of the continuous-tone photographic image and the various processes of printing in ink. Her most recent article in this research area is: “The Photogravure: Photographic Art in Ink”, in Studies in Photography (Winter 2018), 42-52 [with photographer/gravurist Norman McBeath].
In her professional practice, she has been privileged to work with the Centre’s large format inkjet printing facilities to complete the last two of seven photographic portfolios, The Crucible (2009) and The Outcrop (2011). Another of her ongoing research interests is The Photographic Book, particularly as created by twentieth-century photographers such as Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, and Alvin Langdon Coburn. She is currently pursuing research into the artistic and ideological relationships between photographer Paul Strand and the poet Genevieve Taggard, and is preparing for publication a book, Genevieve Taggard: Selected Poetry and Prose, to be published in 2023 by The Boiler House Press.
