Ed van der Elsken – Love on the left bank
PARIS TIPS – First year of university I was doing a visual research about Chloé. As Gaby Aghion was very inspired by those cool kids of left bank in Paris, I came accross to some of Ed van der Elsken’s photographs. My teacher advised me to search his book Love on the left bank which took me almost a year to find (ok I wasn’t looking too hard), until one day I stopped by at Book Marc searching something completely else, but oh the excitement when I saw the book!
So you can imagine my excitement when yesterday I was doing a list of must see current- and upcoming exhibitions. In my favourite museum in Paris, Jeu de Paume, there’s going to be Ed van der Elsken exhibition starting in June 13th. I migh have to see it twice.
PARIS TIPS – My current favourite museums and exhibitions;

Garry Winogrand – Jeu de Paume
