Robin Hammond

New Zealand b.1975Born in New Zealand, Robin moved to the UK in 2002 and began working as a freelance photographer. He has since become best known for his investigative work on human rights and environmental issues, often having to work undercover or in conditions of extreme hardship. His investigation into the trafficking and exploitation of child footballers in West Africa was short listed for a One World Award in 2008 and his work from Zimbabwe later in the same year was short listed for the Care International Prize for Humanitarian photography at the Visa pour l’Image festival in Perpignan. In 2009 his story An Unforgivable Truth won an Amnesty International Media Award and in 2010 he repeated the feat twice over, picking up awards for Toxic Jeans and Zimbabwe's Blood Diamonds.~Robin is now based in Cape Town, South Africa from where he documents stories across the continent.~~
