Sarah Mei Herman

Sarah Mei Herman (1980) studied photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in The Hague, from which she received her BA in 2005. In 2010 she completed her MA in Fine Art Photography at The Royal College of Art in London. Her work has been shown internationally, amongst others at The National Portrait Gallery in London and at Le Chateau d’Eau in Toulouse.
In her work Sarah Mei Herman explores relationships and intimacy between people. The closeness between them or what sets them apart, and the necessity of physical proximity to others. The most fragile and elusive contact between people often seems to exist beyond the reach of language. Herman focuses mainly on adolescents; their constant state of becoming; the fleeting beauty of the continual changes and transitions they go through on their way to adulthood.
‘I’m drawn to the intensity, vulnerability and sometimes loneliness of the unpredictable stages of adolescence.’
