About the Dutch photographer Hans AARSMAN (b.1951)
The profession of Hans AARSMAN can best be described as field work. His photographic work has been shown several times at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. He has written several plays, including a monologue starring Garry WINOGRAND. Every Thursday the Aarsman Collection appears in the Volkskrant, in which he hovers over the photos like a detective with a magnifying glass.
