Eddo Hartmann (The Hague, 1973) studied at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. In 2012 he published a photobook, Here lives my home, with images taken from a striking personal series he made of his parental home, more than twenty years after he had fled from it with his mother and brother. Part of this series was shown at Huis Marseille in 2013 in the exhibition The rediscovery of the world. Photographs from his Pyongyang series have been shown in the Chollima House of Culture in Pyongyang – making him the first Western photographer whose autonomous work has been exhibited in North Korea – and in the Seoul Museum of Art in South Korea. Hartmann’s work has been acquired by a variety of private and public collections.
