Julia Luudens


Julia Luudens was one of the first ‘post-modern’ photographers at the end of last century that staged her photographs. As an autodidact, she played no role in the world of photography and worked completely intuitively. That may explain why her work is so different from other photography of the seventies.

Pep Jansen

1931 - 1969

Pep Jansen probably is the only dedicated party photographer in the history of Dutch photography. His intimate and complex images breathe the Amsterdam party atmosphere of the sixties.

Elbertus Donkerwolk

1810 - 1859

One of the most underrated figures in Dutch history may well be the hairdresser/photographer/entrepreneur Elbertus Donkerwolk.

The fact that his name is now forgotten may perhaps be due to the fact that he was above all a hairdresser.

Jos de Munk

1856 - 1923

The albumen prints shown here, I found on the street in a shoebox with old photos. They were put there to be taken away as trash. Through the owners of the pictures, I managed to trace their creator: Jos de Munk, tobacco seller from Rotterdam. These are most likely the only surviving photographs of this quiet man, who, in his spare time, appears to have been a passionate amateur naturalist and photographer.

Painting from the The Hague School-painter Théophile de Bock that I bought at marktplaats.nl for 375 euro. This painting appears to be a confirmation of my theory that he used photographs as visual examples for his work (see also Théophile de Bock on this website).
