Robin appears on Metropolis, Arte to discuss his passion for Africa, his work on Zimbabwe, his book CONDEMNED, and his most recent work documenting life in Lagos, Nigeria.
Send CONDEMNED, the book, to someone who can make a difference on this issue - a person with power. There are some organisations working hard with few resources to help people with mental disability in African countries in crisis. You can help them.
"Robin Hammond's book, produced with assistance from the Carmignac Foundation, is a true work of classic photojournalism. Poignant and moving, telling but not insensitive, Hammond's work reveals the darker demons of Mugabe's chokehold on Zimbabwe. Where words fail, Hammond's photographs pick up — pulling no punches about the lives destroyed by violence and cruelty. The realities shared in the book are hard to swallow but even harder to ignore." Vaughn Wallace, producer of LightBox

Robin Hammond's work on the victims of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe is the first work of a photojournalist to be published by Edition Bessard as part of his Zine Collection. Number 9 of the series, it is limited to 300 copies and comes with a signed print by the artist.
Continuing his work documenting mental health in African countries in crisis, Robin went to Liberia to investigate the ongoing psychological impact of war on the young men and women who fought as children in the country's civil wars. This work was made possible with the support of The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
