Having grown up in several European countries, Peter Dammers is the founder of Vondelpark Atelier, of which the Haarlem Art Room (H.A.R.) is part. He studied mathematics and philosophy before entering the Gerrit Rietveld Academy on the basis of an experimental photo series. At the school's audio visual department he further developed his skills in painting and movie making, along with sound collage and animation.

After art school Peter went on to study television drama (direction), web design and computer programming, which allowed him to design interactive web applications. Next to working as a visual artist and a movie critic, Peter has been a teacher for over 20 years, at several (international) schools in the country.

Currently Peter also teaches at The Amsterdam Photo Academy, at Crea and MK24. Many of his students enjoyed his lessons to the extent that they enrolled in subsequent courses taught by Peter. Apart from working, Peter enjoys playing tennis and beach volleyball, music improvisation, collecting books and vintage design, studying foreign languages and being silly. Peter's website
