The Nederlands Fotomuseum holds Ed van der Elsken’s complete archive of negatives and slides and has successfully completed its restoration of over 42,000 colour slides by 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 is on show until 6 October 2019 and a publication is published.
The publication Lust for Life | Ed van der Elsken in Colour is the first comprehensive overview of Ed's colour work. With the greatest icons and work never shown before. With his colour photography, Ed pays tribute to human-kind and life around universal themes such as love, life and death.
