 ' Ed van der Elsken',noticed the Stedelijk's Museum experts, traveled to Paris, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Tokyo in search of uncompromising, colourful characters, striking young women and wayward youth. Van der Elsken’s photos and films are visually powerful and uncompromising, emblematic of their time and yet utterly timeless.
He influenced the ‘Zeitgeist’. In his work, he developed a direct and unique personal style. Traces of Van der Elsken’s presence are visible throughout his oeuvre: he wanted his photographs to capture a connection with his subjects. He often staged situations, adopting the role of playful art director. -
