Léonie Hampton

Photojournalism - Winner 2007

Léonie Hamtpon’s work is often described as intimate. Much of her work has focused on family, and most significantly her own family in the series In the shadow of things As Christian Cajoulle writes about her work:

“Leonie Hampton follows her family in their daily lives as she visits them, but reveals in an
extraordinary freshness of approach, working in a flexible and natural way, using colour
and ambient light, and no artificial effects. This lets her garner moments of tenderness,
children’s games, instants of anguish and pain, things in a mess and then things neatly
stacked. She does all this with a subtlety of colour which makes each instant unique,
whether shot inside or outside; she does all this without creating any sort of show,
displaying instead an elegant and simple capacity to change the distance from which
she photographs, free from all dogmatism and always finding the right tone and angles.
Her work presents us with neither a carefully constructed ‘project’ didactic in intent, nor a
sketchbook of impressions. It simply invites us to share emotions, instants, scraps of life
articulated in a natural fashion within the framework of the family, which is the only
constraint Leonie Hampton seems to impose on herself. This is not a narrative or a story,
strictly speaking. Rather, it follows life and its threads as they weave together; taking us
far beyond mere demonstration and making us each look into the real world.”

After graduating in Art History at University College London and SOAS in 2000, she continued her studies in Photography at the London College of Communication.

Since then she has exhibited in solo and group shows in the U.K. France, The Netherlands, Scandanavia, Vienna, Italy and Canada. Successive photo-based projects have been funded by Wellcome Trust and the British Council and her 16-part photo Installation was purchased for the permanent collection of the MEP (Maison Européenne de la Photographie - Ville de Paris) in 2008. In 2011 her award-winning 128-page book In the shadow of things was published by Contrasto (Italy).

Léonie is a part-time teacher for MA Documentary Photography at London College of Communication. She co-founded and runs Still/Moving, a not-for-profit organisation hosting film and photography work-shops and seminars from her studio in London. Formerly known as Léonie Purchas, she has been professionally working as Léonie Hampton since 2010.

Léonie Hampton was born in London in 1978. She lives and works in Devon, United Kingdom.
