Herma Darmstadt Photography

Herma Darmstadt (Amsterdam, 1958) is a Dutch photographer who wants to show us that beauty is everywhere, just waiting to be seen.

Within the frame of her pictures daily scenes seem transformed into  genre art , street views into impressionistic paintings and  portraits into character studies.  Her pictures  give an impression of her travels, mainly through Africa,  and the many encounters that are only possible if you travel like the locals, by bus from town to town and walking from village to village,  just  waiting for  what’s coming , curious and full of astonishment for the unusual and the  unexpected encounter.
