Robin Butter (1987)
Robin Butter is a documentary photographer who works/lives in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Exploring the realm of cultural phenomena, in surroundings that seem stranger than fiction.
Her expertise lies in portraiture and social documentary. She sees her work beautiful as ugly, funny and serious.
Working together with groups as well as with individuals she takes on subjects about identity and people’s unique ways of self-expression. Using photography to escape her own mundane and predesigned life.
She reflects on the behaviour of Western society in general as well as her own behaviour, frequently asking herself; what does this say about our society now?
Her practice involves extensive research and working on long-term projects, spending most of her time in the realm of cultural phenomena.
Robin is attracted to the strange, exceptional, to the hidden and unfamiliar in people and places, which seem undetectable, forgotten, neglected or out of reach.
Received her BA of design in photography at Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in 2014. She self-published her first photobook ‘It takes my mind off things’ by the end of 2015.
Robin enjoys her works as a freelance photographer for several clients and long term personal projects.
