Inez van Lamsweerde, Rineke Dijkstra, Anton Corbijn, Ed van der Elsken, Paul Citroen, Erich Salomon, Eduard Isaac Asser: these are just a few of the famous names in the long tradition of Dutch photographic art represented in this volume.
For about twenty years, Dutch international photography has been on the upswing, yet there is still no comprehensive survey of it available on the book market. With a practically encyclopedic selection of what is obviously the most beautiful and exciting photography, Dutch Eyes tells the history of Dutch photography, embedded in the social, cultural, technological, and economic context of its time. In ten chapters on themes such as landscape, city, and photojournalism, the book spotlights the most important artists, the central developments, and the new directions in the country’s photography scene.
