Robin Hammond Bio:

The winner of two World Press Photo prizes, the RF Kennedy Journalism Award, six Pictures of the Year International Awards, the W.Eugene Smith Award for Humanistic Photography, the recipient of six Amnesty International awards for Human Rights journalism, and named by Foreign Policy as one of the “100 Leading Global Thinkers,” Robin Hammond has dedicated his career to amplifying narratives of marginalized groups through long term photographic projects. His work on discrimination against the LGBTQI+ community around the world, ‘Where Love Is Illegal’, has become a popular social media campaign. It has been exhibited around the world, featured in many publications including on the cover of Time Magazine and National Geographic. The work led to him addressing the United Nations in 2018 to promote a campaign to end the extrajudicial execution and torture of LGBTQI+ individuals.

His work on mental health conditions and neurological disorders, In My World, started in 2011 and has taken him to twenty countries. It has been used to influence governments and corporations to consider the rights of some of the most vulnerable members on the planet. Robin is the founder of Witness Change, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing human rights through visual story telling. Born in New Zealand in 1975, Robin has lived in Japan, South Africa, France and the United Kingdom.
