Born in 1986, Robin de Puy grew up in her parents’ family hotel in the small village of Oude-Tonge, South Holland. She graduated from the Fotoacademie Rotterdam in 2009 and won the Photo Academy Award the same year. In 2013 she received the Dutch Photographic Portrait Prize. In order to gain back her autonomy after years of commissions De Puy embarked on a 10,000km motorcycle road trip through the US in 2015. The images she took on the way were published in her first book: If This Is True, I’ll Never Have to Leave Home Again in 2016, and exhibited in the Fotomuseum The Hague. In 2017 her second book Randy came out as her second solo exhibition opened in the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht, NL.
