The Edward Chambré Hardman Photographic Collection in Liverpool
This is the winner of a Prize
As part of the comprehensive conservation of the former house and studio of the internationally renowned portrait photographer, E. Chambré Hardman, his entire lifetime output in excess of 142,000 images are in the process of being catalogued, digitised, conserved and made accessible to view. They offer a unique insight into Liverpool and its people during the mid-20th century.
This is the only surviving example of a photographic studio open to the public. Extensive historical research in Harman’s notes and studio registers took place and an exhibition room has been opened where exhibitions are changed once a year.
“For the outstanding conservation and presentation of the lifetime work of an esteemed photographer and his former studio and home, that offers a unique insight into Liverpool and its people in the mid-20th century.”
