Ed Van der Elsken (1925-1990) is a unique figure in Dutch 20th century documentary cinema and photography. As a photographer, his preferred subject was the street, and in cities like Paris, Amsterdam, Hong Kong or Tokyo, he enjoyed "hunting" for subjects. Often qualified as a "photographer of marginal figures", he sought in reality an aesthetic form, a visual authenticity, devoid of artifice, a beauty that was sometimes openly sensual, at times even erotic. Ed Van der Elsken was fascinated by these proud figures, full of life and vitality.
