The Lost Camera is the most important retrospective survey ever of Dutch street photographer Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990). A unique collection of the finest works from his photographic oeuvre, in both black-and-white and color, which are now among the most iconic images in Dutch photographic history.

Ed van der Elsken was an innovative, idiosyncratic street photographer and maker of documentary films. One of the most important Dutch photographers of the 20th century, he went to cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and Tokyo in search of self-confident people, beautiful girls and contrary youth. His photographs are strong in form, rooted in their time and at the same time timeless.

Van der Elsken's breakthrough came in 1956 with the publication A Love Story in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. That picture novel was followed by more than 20 books, including Jazz (1959), Sweet Life (1966) and The Discovery of Japan (1988).
