Celebrated photographer Tom Hunter to deliver annual lecture at The Cass organised by London Independent Photography.
Tom Hunter will deliver the annual Janet Hall Memorial lecture at The Cass on Thursday 29 November at 6.30pm
At the lecture, organised by London Independent Photography, Tom Hunter will talk about a life in photography and art from counter culture to Vermeer.
Tom Hunter is Professor of Photography Research at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, and graduated from the London College of Printing in 1994 with his work ‘The Ghetto’, which is now on permanent display at the Museum of London. He studied for his MA at the Royal College of Art, where, in 1996, he was awarded the Photography Prize by Fuji Film for his series ‘Travellers’.
In 1998 ‘Woman Reading a Possession Order’ from his series ‘Persons Unknown’, won the John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery. In 1999 Tom’s series of the ‘Holly Street’ estate was exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery, London, while in 2000 his ‘Life and Death in Hackney’ series, went on show at the White Cube Gallery and the Manchester City Art Gallery.
In 2006 Tom became the only artist to have a solo photography show at the National Gallery for his series ‘Living in Hell and Other Stories’, which talked about Hackney and its relationship to its local paper.
His works are in many collections around the world including MOMA in New York, Tate Britain, The V&A, the National Gallery in London, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Smithsonian in Washington and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. In 2010 he was awarded Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society.
Tom Hunter’s work also forms part of The Cass East End Archive, an online digital resource intended for artists, designers, academics and researchers from a cross-section of disciplines.
