is a Dutch fine art photographer.
Van de Puttelaar was born in Zaandam, The Netherlands. She attended the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam from 1991 to 1996. She specializes in portrait photography, mostly portraying nudes. She currently lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Like the works of other contemporary Dutch photographers, such as Rineke Dijkstra, Hellen van Meene and Desiree Dolron, her works show influences of Dutch Golden Age painting in their composition, use of light and color, and rendering of textures and surfaces. To achieve her photographic effects, she utilizes film rather than digital photography. Most of her works are untitled, enhancing the effect of alienation, while retaining a strong element of eroticism.
