Harmen Meinsma is currently based in Rotterdam but grew up with his grandmother in Friesland. In his teenage years, Meinsma started photographing himself and his friends in his grandmother’s attic. Intuitively he focussed on bringing to life his personal fantasies full of unconventional beauty, a theme that still characterises his visual language.

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. His images have been exhibited in New York during Photoville and as of recently in the Kunsthal Rotterdam. Besides that, his images have been featured in &C, FD Persoonlijk, NRC, Vogue NL and Volkskrant Magazine.
