Robin Alysha Clemens | Utrecht, The Netherlands

Short bio…

I take lots of photos and make short films sometimes. 21 years young. Born and raised in Utrecht, but I spend most of my time traveling in between The Hague (where I study photography at the Royal Art Academy), Utrecht (where I live and love) and Amsterdam (where everything fun happens).

You shoot film because…

With my ADHD mind, film forces me to concentrate and really look at the subject while with my digital camera it’s really easy to just keep shooting without really taking the time. It’s a different way of working. I love analog grain and I also like the fact that it can be as unpredictable if you want it to be.

Your photography feels like…

My photography consists of my own memories of things that happened, and of the memories and scenes I’ve created myself. I have to have people around me at all times, that’s why I almost only take photos of people. I’m bad at being alone, although I am intrigued by the idea of loneliness.
