German Herrera


Artist Bio

Trained as a photographer and musician, his work explores the visual expression of the psycho-emotional landscape that surrounds him.

Art historian and critic Elizabeth Ferrer brings attention to an important characteristic of his work:
“Many photographers working with the formats of constructed imagery or photomontage do so with a keen sense of intentionality, as a means of conveying a specific statement or idea. Herrera, in contrast, relies greatly on intuition and emotion, more interested in the possibility of locating meaning outside the arenas of pure intellect and reason.” read more…

Herrera was the recipient of an Artist Residency at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, California in 2006. His work was selected by SF Camerawork, the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel and Photoalliance for their print collector’s programs.
