Herman Cater was born in Celje, Slovenia in 1941.
He became known by his landscape photographs in Slovenia and abroad but his collection about the old man attracted the most attention in the world. He got the highest awards on many world salons. This year was published his book Stanko.
In 2012 FIAP gave him title MFIAP (master in the international federation for art photography). He had his own photo exhibitions in Slovenia and other countries: Italy, Austria, USA, Germany, Croatia, Sibiria, Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, this year on Broadway gallery in N.Y., and Vienna in Moya museum.
