Dr Felicity Hammond


I am a senior lecturer on the MA Photography programme, teaching across theory and practice units. I have previously held teaching positions at Goldsmiths, LCC, Camberwell College of Art, ECAL (Switzerland) and London South Bank University, and have delivered guest lectures at a number of universities both nationally and internationally. I received my practice-based PhD, funded by TECHNE, from Kingston School of Art in 2021, and MA Photography from the Royal College of Art in 2014.

My practice-based research broadly interrogates the ways in which digital technologies influence the global image of the city. My touring solo exhibition commissioned by C / O Berlin and Extra City Antwerp, specifically aimed to develop a material understanding of computer generated architectural images of profit-driven building projects, exploring how they do not just visualise future urban space, but also play an active role in its production. My practice extends the digital production of images into photographic print, photo-sculpture, and installation, to understand how sites of urban change are networked through these images.

My more recent artistic research extends my exploration of the urban into an investigation of the journeys of urban materialities, where sites of extraction supply the raw materials that make up the urban terrain. My new practice-based research traces matter from mineral to city to comment on the urgent and planetary nature of man-made material growth. 

Alongside solo exhibitions at C/O Berlin, Extra City Antwerp, Contact Toronto and Arebyte London, I have exhibited in group exhibitions at Fotomuseum Winterthur, Centre for Visual Art, Denver, CAFA Art Museum Beijing, Saatchi Gallery London, amongst others. I was the winner of the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award in 2016, and have been selected for FOAM Talent and ING Unseen Talent Award. My first artist book, Property, was published by SPBH Editions
