beethoven 1967

i was approximately six months old when the above image was taken, in the ‘summer of of love’: beethovenstraat 1967, three young hipsters crossing the street looking towards the camera, this well-known and quite famous image was shot by ‘ed van der elsken’ who often engaged his subjects whilst shooting around amsterdam, trying to capture the atmosphere on the streets…

now, local journalist and filmmaker ‘bahram sadeghi’ is looking to find the three girls in the image to help him make a film, the photo museum in rotterdam has recently discovered several unknown images from the same afternoon… if anybody knows who they are, he would love to hear from you…
