Edward Fitzmaurice Chambré Hardman was an Irish photographer born in Dublin, Ireland. Aged 18 he spent four years as a regular officer in the Gurkha Rifles in India, after which he moved to Liverpool which became his permanent home. Influenced by his father's amateur experiments Chambré Hardman became interested in photography during his childhood, but did not establish a working practice until 1923 when he opened a portrait studio in Liverpool. While portraiture was Chambré Hardman's livelihood, his real photographic interest lay in landscape photography which he pursued throughout his life alongside his commercial practice. His most famous photographs include "A Memory of Avignon"(1923), "The Copse" (1934) and "The Birth of the Ark Royal" (1950).

The research divides Hardman's oeuvre into portraiture and landscape, along lines that he had determined by ordering and concern. The thesis focuses exclusively on his landscape photography. The representation of landscape is a recognised genre within the history of art. The thesis locates the landscape photography of the British photographer Edward Chambré Hardman (1898-1988) within the histories of landscape photography and to the broader genre of landscape representation by British artists during the first half of the twentieth century.
