Rotterdam: nai010 publishers, 2021.
Condition: As New
A previously unpublished photobook gem from Ed van der Elsken, the enfant terrible of Dutch photography famed for Love on the Left Bank Around 1960, Ed van der Elsken assembled a photobook on the theme of feasts. Drawing from both old and new work, he produced a dazzling sequence of festive occasions: fun, celebration, dancing, music, fairs, carnivals, excitement and euphoria, but also drunkenness and exhaustion in the early hours. Van der Elsken combined his photographs into sparkling and rhythmical pairings, so that a genuine sense of joy emanates from the pages. Item #20465
