Graham Hembrough

Elected to RCA in 2020

Brought up on Anglesey from an early age, educated at Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni before studying at a number of colleges and universities. Graham lectured in Graphic Design and Photography over many years in Derbyshire and in North Wales before concentrating on his freelance work as a peripatetic tutor and his creative photography.

He has work in public and private collections internationally and works towards exhibitions, residencies and to commission; a recent example being ‘Conwy Portraits’ - the opening exhibition at Conwy Culture Centre.

Graham’s photography is rooted in social documentary practice, known particularly for his extensive work in the West of Ireland and locally for his land/seascape and portraiture projects. The Arts Council of Wales / National Lottery have supported his work on a number of occasions, including a generous grant in July 2020 enabling continuing professional development and opportunities for creative experimentation and play.
