Randy (*signed*)

@ de Puy, Robin



Presentation by Hannibal : 

"In 2015, Robin de Puy travelled across America on a motorcycle for her book If This is True… But as her road trip had almost come to an end, she discovered Randy. He rode past – fast – but in the split second she saw him she knew: she had to find out who this boy was.

About that first encounter she wrote: « Randy, a fragile-looking boy, striking face, big ears – a puppy, a golden retriever waiting for the ball to be thrown, (too) naive. Can I photograph you? I asked him. The question was met with a shrug and a look both anxious and curious, a look that seemed to say so much and so little, then he wholeheartedly said Yes. »

De Puy took his portrait, left town a few days later, and that was it – at least, so it seemed at the time. Back home in Amsterdam, Randy popped into her mind from time to time – it was impossible to meet this boy and leave it at that single image. She visited him again three time in 2016 and 2017. She turns him inside out, looks at him, stares at him and he lets her. « Never before have I met someone who gives me so much space to watch, to observe him. » "

Robin de Puy presented this portrait of Randy in 13 May 2018 at the Bonnefantenmuseum in the form of an installation that comprised photos and film.
