Artist

Lottie Hampson

London-born Lottie Hampson is a photographer and artist who splits her time between the UK and Mallorca. She studied at Central St Martins and Edinburgh College of Art.

Her artistic practice often starts with analogue film photography that spans all formats, with which she photographs the world around her. Using film helps her to slow down, and the images she takes are often a quiet meditation on her surroundings; slowly building a sense of place through observations of light and landscapes, and fragments of the people that inhabit it.

Switching between her many cameras, her practice often involves developing and printing her own photographs, maximising the relationship with her work in a 'satisfying and exciting process'.

Lottie's Style

Lottie is fascinated by the ever-present connection between people and the landscape surrounding them. These photographs often provide inspiration for further works such as hand-made books, photo-intaglio and cyanotypes. Lottie has exhibited widely in London, Edinburgh and Wales and was the runner up for the Scottish Portrait Award.

Alongside her photography practice, Lottie works in helping facilitate artist residency programmes in various countries.

She says: “My work acts as a visual diary for me, but I hope that they would evoke a sense of calm for a viewer. I like my photos to look timeless, so they can provide a view into a world in which viewers could imagine themselves.”

"I hope these photos build a sense of place through observations of light, landscapes, and fragments of the people and creatures that inhabit them. They are an exploration of time passing; a quiet meditation on the relationship we hold to our encompassing environments." - Lottie Hampson

Drop 5 - Autumn 2021

"This series is a movement away from the medium of pure photography and into a more tactile way of making. The ceramics are pieces that I have been working on for a few years; with no formal training, I created a selection of hand-built pieces, simply for the joy of using my hands to mould and sculpt and get in touch with that side of my creativity again. After firing the pieces, I sat with them in their raw earthenware state in my room until a few months ago when I finally decided to fire them. I loved their simplicity so I only used a simple transparent glaze for their protection.

They are particularly special to me because each one is totally individual and there will never be another like it - perfect in their wonkiness. I get so excited about the fresh produce over the summer months. Often on mornings after a swim at the Hampstead ponds I will visit a nearby grocery shop and buy what I think looks beautiful; artichokes, figs, greengages, borlotti beans, pears and peaches. Of course I eventually eat them, but first I like to photograph them on my Hasselblad camera in the studio with a simple white sheet as the backdrop, often introducing my ceramic pieces, which in themselves are organic shapes. I think they compliment the fruit and vegetables in a way; simple vessels for holding the fruits and vegetables snugly, both ornamental and functional. After I get the film developed, I draw the still lives from the photos that I have taken. The final images act as markers for the passing of the seasons and the bittersweet transcience of summer." - Lottie Hampson, Still Life

A Sense of Place

"My launch collection is a series of photographs from my ongoing project ‘A Sense of Place’. For years I have spent time photographing my surroundings as I travel, shooting on both colour and black and white film in various formats.

Documenting places from South Wales to India to Iceland, I hope these photos build a sense of place through observations of light, landscapes, and fragments of the people and creatures that inhabit them. They are an exploration of time passing; a quiet meditation on the relationship we hold to our encompassing environments.

I like to use mainly analogue techniques so as to slow down my way of viewing my surroundings. These prints are a mixture of digital and hand made prints in both colour and black and white darkrooms." - Lottie Hampson, A Sense of Place
