Jacqueline van Paaschen and Els Kerremans: De ramp / The flood

59,50

The publication ‘The Disaster of 1953’, is an edition of the Association to promote the interests of bookshops whose benefits benefited the National Disaster Fund. All those involved, such as author, photographers, designers, lithographers, printers and binders, have cooperated anonymously and partly disinterestedly. This book, which has been published in a circulation of more than 600,000 copies, is now part of the collective memory of many Dutch people.

In the 1950s there was a change from press photography to documentary photography, where the photo registration of the flood disaster is one of the first examples.

Research has shown that many well-known Dutch photographers (Henk Jonker, Ed van Wijk, Cas Oorthuys, Ed van der Elsken, Eva Besnyö, Maria Austria, Henk Nieuwenhuijs, Kees Molkenboer, Dolf Kruger, Aart Klein, Martien Coppens, Jo Bokma, Ad Windig and Frits Gerritsen) who were still at the beginning of their careers, travelled to the scene of the disaster in the early days of the disaster to report photographically. For many of them, the typical style of photography can be seen in those series. From the complete series of the photographers in question, a new selection has been made, in which the documentary character becomes visible.
