Sarah Mei Herman – Between Us



I started photographing the English brothers Fred and Archie in 2010 during my studies in London.


Sarah Mei Herman

Between Us

Growing up is an important theme in my work. I mainly focus on young adolescents; on their constant state of becoming; trying to capture the fleeting beauty of the continual changes they go through on their way to adulthood. I’m drawn to the intensity, vulnerability and sometimes loneliness of these stages. This ongoing series shows the young people that fascinate me – most of them I have been photographing over a long period of time – photographed alone or together with their sibling, friend or love.




Sarah Mei Herman was born in Amsterdam in 1980. She 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 Photography at The Royal College of Art in London. Sarah Mei Herman has received several grants from Mondriaan Fund and Prins Bernard Cultuur Fund. Her work has been shown internationally, among others at The National Portrait Gallery in London and at Le Chateau d’Eau in Toulouse. In 2010 her ongoing series Julian and Jonathan was selected for the Talent issue of Foam Magazine.

A greyhound’s look. Greyhounds are very popular in Spain. They are used for hunting and, many times, abandoned in the highways afterwards. It’s not easy to be a greyhound in Spain. Fortunately there are people who rescue and adopt them. Madrid, Spain. Photo: Raul Amaru @amarulero / @runa_photos #burndiary #burndiary_amarulero #burnmagazine
