Ed van der Elsken: feest

19,50

Around 1960 Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) put together a photo book around the theme of the party (in Dutch: feest). He drew on old and new work and made a design that is a succession of festive events: fun, cheering, dance, music, fairs, carnival, excitement and ecstasy, but also drunkenness and exhaustion in the late hours. He combined the individual photos into sparkling and rhythmic pairs, allowing the fun of the pages to splash off. For reasons unknown, the design was left on the shelf at the time.

The design for ‘feest’ was one of the big surprises in Van der Elsken’s legacy that the Rijksmuseum and the Netherlands Fotomuseum acquired in 2019. Sixty years after the photographer worked on the design with scissors and masking tape, the vivid book has now been published on the format he envisioned.
