Astrid Hermes was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and still lives and works there.
Her early work won her third place in the prestigious Prix the Rome competition, It featured human bodies, often naked, in strange postures and without showing the face, which showed us something about the person being portrayed which was more like an attitude or a mood than a portrait. In the later photographs of Astrid Hermes the people are no longer physically present; objects and empty spaces seem to be filled with stories, charged with a laden or melancholic presence. She has exhibited in the Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Indonesia and the USA.
