The Collection Illuminated By Eddy Posthuma De Boer Special Edition Ed Van Der Elsken / Avenue

The third edition in the series of exhibitions entitled The Collection Illuminated by ... is guest-curated by photographer Eddy Posthuma de Boer. He has made a personal selection from the photographs taken by Ed van der Elsken for the Dutch magazine Avenue. The two photographers were friends for many years and produced travel reportages for Avenue from the mid-seventies onward.

Each picture is accompanied by a personal commentary from Posthuma de Boer. His observations throw new light on Ed van der Elsken's photographs and also provide insight into what drives Posthuma de Boer himself as a photographer.
