SAM LAMBERT [1927 – 1981] : ESTATE/ARTIST CONTACT DETAIL INQUIRY
The Rights Clearance dept at a public London art gallery have contacted the PPHP looking for contact details for the estate of photographer Sam Lambert.
They say: Dear Will,
I’m working on the Transforming Tate Britain: Archive & Access project, a major initiative aiming to digitise, and make available online, the archives of 52 artists in our collection.
There are a number of photographs in Ben Nicholson’s archive taken by a photographer called SAM LAMBERT and I am trying to trace contact details for his estate. I wondered whether you might be able to post my request for information on your site board to see whether anyone has any clues? From what I have gleaned so far, he was primarily known as an architectural photographer.
If you or your contributors/broader photographic community could help in anyway that would be wonderful.
Many thanks in advance for your time.
Answers on an email or call please and I will put you in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org Office 07802437827 (UK)
