The Nederlands Fotomuseum has successfully completed its restoration of over 42,000 colour slides by photographer Ed van der Elsken. The completion of the vast project means that the colour work of one of the Netherlands’ most influential photographers has been saved for posterity. To celebrate the feat, an exhibition entitled Lust for Life | Ed van der Elsken in Colour will open at the Nederlands Fotomuseum on 25 May 2019. Lust for Life will be the first ever major retrospective of Ed van der Elsken’s work in colour and will show how he looked at the world and charmed his subjects.
Lust for Life will show visitors how Ed van der Elsken looked at the world and charmed his subjects. The exhibition will include both familiar images and material previously unseen by the public. It will also share new knowledge that has emerged during the restoration. The successful Eye Love You multimedia presentation already shown at the De Parade travelling theatre festival will reappear in the exhibition in a new form.
The exhibition Lust for Life has been made possible by the Blockbusterfonds.
