Robin Miniter (2016)

An avid adventure seeker and vagabonding storyteller, Robin Miniter comes to OHMA with a B.A. from Marist College and a critical eye turned to the experience of female bodies in motion.

During undergrad, her senior capstone project was a photo documentation of feminism, gender performativity, and the experiences of women in “hyper-masculine” sports. She spent the following spring on the flat-track photographing and collecting oral histories of the Amsterdam Derby Dames, the Netherlands’ first roller derby team. As a Fulbright-Nehru Student Research Scholar to India, Robin took to the pitches with her cleats and camera, as she chased the rise of women’s rugby across the subcontinent.

Robin is currently pursuing her Certificate in Documentary Arts from Duke University. From OHMA, she hopes to refine her vision as a multidisciplinary documentary artist. It is here that she wants to further explore and capture the tales of these female pioneers, and the ways that they carve space for the next generations of women to do the same.
