Ed van der Elsken


Classic photographers

When I saw this photo for the first time, I stopped what I was doing (I think I was actually walking somewhere in Amsterdam) and I stared at it for what must have been a long time. It’s a photo by Ed van der Elsken, a Dutch photojournalist. Most of his work is in b/w, but look at the colour work! I wanted to link to his work earlier, and since I’ll be focusing on early unknown colour photography this week, now is the time.
(updated entry - thanks, Pim!)

PS: I got an email saying that the link to Ed van der Elsken’s doesn’t work right. I can’t reproduce the problem here, it works fine for me; but another way to get to the images is to use the museum’s main site and then to use the “Search” function.
