'Corbijn's contradictions - the fine, somewhat fragile female body pictured in a raw, harsh environment - is what I wanted to use for my image. Additionally, I didn't want to lose the 'nudity' and therefore chose to use the design of van benthum in a different form'. - Robin de Puy

Robin de Puy
Together with fashion designer Fransisco van Benthum, Robin created 'Isa Mia, 2012', based on a photograph by renowned Dutch photographer, Anton Corbijn. 'Christy Turlington, Dublin' was the inspiration for Robin's image, which is on display at &Foam, Vijzelstraat 78, until 17 March 2013.

Robin de Puy graduated from the Fotoacademie Rotterdam in 2009. She subsequently won the Photo Academy Award 2009 and was nominated for various photography prizes. Her work is published in a number of national and international magazines, including the Volkskrant Magazine, LINDA and CODE.
