Portraits by Robin de Puy



Robin de Puy's photographs are intense portraits of both celebrities and non-celebrities. Even though many of the portraits are staged, some of them even falling more into the realm of fashion photography, they have something very honest about them. She seems to be less interested in polishing an image than in looking for differences between people. “My photography is all about people," she says. "People intrigue me. They affect me. I’m sometimes overwhelmed by people."

De Puy's portraits have appeared in both Dutch and international newspapers and magazines. She has previously had a portfolio of her series Cosmo Dubai on GUP and she was featured in NEW Dutch Photography Talent 2012. She was nominated for the Silver Camera 2012 for both the 'portraits' category and for the National Portrait Prize 2012.
