Sam Haskin (1926–2009) was an alumnus of London College of Communication (then known as London School of Printing and Graphic Arts), where he studied photography between 1949 and 1951. A British photographer born and raised in South Africa, he published numerous highly influential books in the 1970s. He married Alida (1927–2012) in 1952, who played a key role in the launch of his career.

It was Sam and Alida’s wish to create awards benefiting postgraduate photography students at London College of Communication, after their death. The Sam and Alida Haskins Study Grant is testament to their generosity and a wonderful way to remember them at LCC.
