Robin de Puy graduated from the Fotoacademie Rotterdam in 2009. She subsequently won the Photo Academy Award In 2009. It doesn’t take long for the Netherlands to spot the talent of De Puy. In 2013, she receives the Dutch Photographic Portrait Prize for a portrait of fellow photographer An-Sofie Kesteleyn. The assignments keep stacking up and her career begins to take off. In 2015, she travels across America on a motorcycle. During this trip, an intimate portrait emerges in text and image of both herself as of the persons portrayed. This leads up to the exhibition ‘If This is True…’ in the Fotomuseum The Hague and a book (2016) named similarly.
