E. Chambre Hardman

7 December - 17 February 2013

Irish-born Edward Chambré Hardman (b.1898 d.1988) is best known for his photograph The Birth of the Ark Royal (1950) and for the highly successful commercial portrait studio that he ran on Liverpool’s Bold Street from 1923, and Rodney Street from 1949. The early 1930s marked a turning point for Hardman as he began to develop his passion for picturing the varied British landscape – from the wilderness to the pastoral – in a style that moved him away from the soft focus of Pictorialism.

In 1979 Hardman’s entire photographic output would have been lost were it not for the intervention of Peter Hagerty, the Open Eye Gallery’s then Director. Hagerty played a pivotal role in saving this archive, dedicating many years to cataloguing, conserving, and contextualising Hardman’s work.

This exhibition brings together a selection of E. Chambré Hardman’s landscapes taken over a forty-year period. Curated by Julia García Hernández, it is delivered in partnership with the National Trust, and will tour to The Hardmans’ House, Rodney Street, in Spring 2013.

The E. Chambré Hardman archive of photographs and associated ephemera will be available to view in Liverpool’s Central Library from 2013. New prints of the work of E. Chambré Hardman can be purchased via the websitewww.ntprints.com
