Hermann got his first taste of documentary photography at a young age exploring and photographing abandoned houses in the High Desert town of Lancaster, California. His fascination with these domestic remnants grew into a life-long passion for photographing and documenting the lives of people.
He has covered many diverse social topics, from homeless metal thieves, rare diseases, food justice, underground urban dining events, and inner city boxing. His fascination for street photography and the iPhone has grown into a love affair that has spawn an occult following on Instagram, a city-wide book project, and an exploration into combining old historical processes with new technologies to challenge the viewer’s understanding of what photography still is and what it has become.
