The exhibition is accompanied by an exhaustive publication that examines the life and work of Ed van der Elsken.

The volume features essays by Hripsimé Visser, David Campany, Colin van Heezik and Susan Aasman together with a unique collection of his most celebrated works in black and white, and color – images that, today, are among the most iconic of Dutch photographic history. The publication also includes written odes to Ed van der Elsken by artists Nan Goldin, Paulien Oltheten and Valerie Jouve, each of whom is inspired and influenced by his work.

The catalogue is available online, in the museum shop and in selected bookshops.
