Fundación MAPFRE offers a broader retrospective exhibition of the photographic and cinematographic work of Ed van der Elsken, an artist considered to be the most important Dutch photographer of the 20th century. Considered the enfant terrible of Dutch photography, he was always interested in the social strata marginalized by society. You can visit it until May 20.

With a style difficult to define or classify, the artist found in cities like Amsterdam, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo the ideal setting to set his goal. The Dutchman was dedicated to capture images of people who were on the street and on their trips. Neither handsome nor famous, the individuals he photographed were on foot, what he calls “my kind of people”.
