I am Robin, a lens-based artist from Amsterdam. My work explores questions of identity, belonging, and a sense of community. I focus on people’s daily life (the interesting and the mundane), their traditions, and the associated symbolism. Diving head-first into unknown worlds, I prefer telling stories from the fringes, from the non-conformists and marginalized. 

Photography graduate of the Royal Academy Of Arts in The Hague. Always looking for new collaborations.
