This week inspiration wasn’t difficult to find: the well-respected Annet Gelink gallery (30 seconds walk from my studio) have opened a new space, just a few days ago. It is designated as a permanent exhibition space; dedicated solely to one of Amsterdam’s most important photographers: Ed van der Elsken.
If you don’t know his work it is a great chance to get to know it and if you do… you’ll no doubt enjoy seeing it all over again.
The gallery will feature a regularly rotating (and random) selection of his wonderful oeuvre, they have edition prints for sale, an extensive collection of books and plans for van der Elsken-related projects in the near future.
