For the first twenty years of his life, Harmen Meinsma lived with his grandmother in a small village in Friesland. During his teens, he felt like an outcast. His photography grew to be a positive space, where he could be himself. What started as building small decors in his grandma’s attic – where he photographed himself and friends – grew into a wider determination to put the underdog on a pedestal. Harmen is inspired by the people he comes across in real life. He amplifies what intrigues him through his lens. “In my work, I direct the spotlight to outcasts and the birds of paradise in this world and I turn them into icons.” Harmen Meinsma received his BA (Hons) degree from the Willem de Kooning academy in 2017, specializing in fine art photography. Since then, he is working on vibrant personal and commissioned projects. Harmen his work has been exhibited in New York during Photoville and as of recently in the Kunsthal Rotterdam. Besides that, his images have been featured in magazines such as &C, FD Persoonlijk, Nouveau, and Vogue NL.
