The Photographers' Gallery

3 August 2001- 23 September 2001

Ed van der Elsken was one of the great documentary photographers of the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies, and this first British solo survey gives the opportunity to understand his pivotal position between street photographers such as Weegee and Brassai, and the emotive, ultra-subjectivist photography of Nan Goldin and Larry Clark, that came after him. An unrestrainedly energetic chronicler of his times, van der Elsken's passion for life translates into a rapacious and subjective photography, and a restless experimentation across the media of film and still photography. The exhibition includes his most celebrated work, Love on the Left Bank (1956), a noir novel-in-images about doomed life and love set in post-war Paris.
