Henk Pasman born was in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. My education started at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, dept.painting and graphic art. During this education i also practised photography, and after completing the Academy i decided to continue my studies at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, dept. photography. In my work I pursue to see a photo as an autonomous image. This is not new in the visual arts. However in photography it still is a challenge, as an image mostly has to meet the needs of a journalistic or advertising notion. Rarely this photo will be judged on its own merits.
