About

Adriaan van Heerden
Adriaan van Heerden is an international award winning photographer whose poetic and poignant photographs have garnered accolades around the world. Adriaan came to photography via a PhD in Philosophy at King’s College, Cambridge, where his dissertation explored the fundamental roles that tragedy, humour and love play in our shared human existence and experience of the world, and Adriaan now uses photography as a means to illuminate these themes.

Adriaan’s work has been exhibited in London (including Cork Street, Pall Mall, and Mayfair), Barcelona, Kyoto and Singapore, and his pictures are held in private and corporate collections in the UK, the USA and South Africa.

He is currently represented by RISE Art and Argenta Fine Art.
