Aarsman was born in 1951 in Amsterdam. He started his career as a photojournalist for the Dutch newspaper Trouw. In 1989 he published the book Hollandse Taferelen which consisted of landscapes photographed from the roof of a camper which he pulled through the Netherlands for a year. In 1990–1991 he finished a photo series of East German states.

He exhibited work at the Rencontres d'Arles festival in Arles, France in 2011.

Aarsman also is a novelist and playwright. His debut literary work was Twee hoofden, een kussen (1995) and more recently he has been dedicating himself more to writing than photography.
