Ed van der Elsken

2016 - 2019


Tungsten produced a multimedia slide show based on work of the dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) for the first edition of the Parademuseum, a new collaboration between Dutch musea and theatre festival the Parade.

Direct cause is a large restoration project by the Dutch Fotomuseum in Rotterdam. They want to preserve van der Elsken’s fragile color diapositives for the future. The (in the meantime) restored photographs which are incorporated in the show, all come from van der Elsken’s book, Eye Love You (1977), which was recently republished.
