Last night Robin de Puy won the Rabo Photographic Portrait Prize 2019 with this portrait of 89 year old writer and poet Remco Campert, shot for Volkskrant Magazine. The jury, led by Wim van Sinderen, curator of Fotomuseum Den Haag, saw two portraits in one photo: "The portrait of Campert's face: with a faraway look in his eyes he seems to see something that we can only guess. The person portrayed is fragile. Furthermore we see a portrait of his hands, full of zest for life and conviction. They make the portrait dynamic. His spiritual power shines from the photo.'
