Ed van der Elsken 'Lust For Life' at Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam

25.05.2019 - 06.10.2019


'Lust For Life' ​​celebrates the fact that the Nederlands Fotomuseum was able to save over 42.000 colour slides by Ed van der Elsken. The exhibition will be the first retrospective of his colour work with many never shown prints on view. 

Van der Elsken used photography to capture universal themes such as love, life, and death. His work is still very popular among both old and young generations and his idiosyncratic, extroverted character marks his photography. Throughout his life, he often made contact with people all around the world. His energy and lust for life live on in his work and continues to touch people. 

If you want to be assured of access to the exhibition, make sure to order your tickets in advance!
