Guest Artist: Herb Hammer (1937-2004)

"Santa Fe Nude Figures #1"

Herb Hammer was born in New York, in the Hell's Kitchen area, in 1937. He took up photography in 1985, at the age of forty-eight. Herb studied at the International Center for Photography in New York in 1986 and '87.

In 1995 Herb studied with Joyce Tenneson at the Santa Fe Workshops, and returned there in 1996 to study with Greg Gorman and John Weiss. He has exhibited in group shows in New York City and on Long Island.

Herb had a keen and sensitive eye. The following are examples of some of Herb's figure photography done in the Santa Fe area. In them, he has found beauty in the abstract details of the human form and in the figure in the outdoors.

Herb died unexpectedly of a cerebral hemorrhage, at age 66 in June 2004. He is survived by his wife Suette, who now lives in Florida.
