The Nederlands Fotomuseum has initiated a new exhibition series: ‘The collection illuminated by …’, in which the museum invites a guest curator who presents a select number of works from the rich museum collection from a personal viewpoint. Photojournalist Vincent Mentzel is the guest curator of the first edition. From the more than five million images in the Museum collection, he has selected fifteen that have inspired him, moved him or that carry a personal narrative. The exhibition presents icons from the collection, including work by Aart Klein, Ed van der Elsken and Peter Martens. But previously unshown work also contributes to Mentzel’s selection. With a personal outline with every photo, this exhibition places the collection in a new light.
