Dirk de Herder was born in Rotterdam in 1914 and grew up in an artistic environment, his father Alle de Herder was a musician. De Herder initially became a painter, but soon discovered that he could express his passions in photography: looking and composing. De Herder maintained personal contact with Brassaï, working from Paris, while in the Netherlands he made contact with Henri Berssenbrugge. In addition, he was often in the circles of painters; for some time he was a photographer of the Cobra movement, through which he got to know Karel Appel and Corneille well. His work also brought him to VARA, where he portrayed hundreds of artists from 1954 to 1964, including the Doorsnee family, Pipo de Clown, Dorus (Tom Manders) and pianist Arthur Rubinstein. Light plays an important role in De Herder's 'photographic dreams'. He often found his subjects close to home: flowers, people, streets and beaches. They feature in his most beautiful photos: of an open window with net curtains, taken with backlight, and of streets gleaming after a nighttime rain shower. It is not without reason that artistic photographers such as Brassaï, André Kertész and Man Ray were his examples.
