Francis Hammond is a British photographer, growing up in London England. With parents who are artists, painters and potters, he made things all the time in his father’s studio from a very young age. Coming to photography seemed just natural.
Francis started his career in New York and worked for all the major interiors Food and lifestyle magazines. He then moved to Paris, working in and around Europe whilst keeping his clients in the USA.
Today, Francis works mostly with major book publishers in France and the USA as making books is the most satisfying for him. 2-year, sometimes 3-year projects end up as beautiful, permanent objects that stay.
One such major book is “Versailles a private invitation” published by Flammarion. Not only was it a major work covering the whole domain, in the reprint editions, parts of the chateau that have been restored had been added and he has had a real inside look at the most amazing chateau in the world.
Today Francis’ work is more varied, but as he says “It’s all about how we live, things we eat, where we live and people around us: interiors, food and lifestyle”
