Feest – Ed van der Elsken (2020)

A rare pleasure of a translation amid the darkness of 2020, as well as a glimpse of the more carefree world of 60 years ago, commissioned by the Rijksmuseum: the new text accompanying Feest, a hitherto unpublished photobook of festive images of the Netherlands and beyond in the 1950s and early 1960s by famed Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990), now compiled from his archives and according to his design by the Rijksmuseum and Nederlands Fotomuseum.
