Stedelijk x Ed van der Elsken

Photographic Competition



Jackie Hooft and Gaia Sofia Cozijn

From February until May 2017, the Stedelijk presents the largest overview of works by Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken. Renowned as a street photographer and recognised as the most important Dutch photographer of the 20th century, Elsken cared about making a personal connection with the people he photographed and, like a playful art director, often staged situations, too.

Sophie has created this beautiful series of photographs for a competition presented by Stedelijk with Elsken’s aesthetic and style in mind.
