On the road - Travelling with the photographer
The exhibition On the road – Traveling with the photographer in the National Archives of the Netherlands shows how travelling and photography have become inextricably bound to each other. Since the 19th century, photographers have been recording the discovery of new worlds, chronicling an ever-changing world and showing us exotic far-away places. From the turbulent developments in Sudetenland on the eve of the Second World War, through the unknown China and Russia in the 1950s, to mysterious Latin-America.
The National Archives is exhibiting work by photographers Ed van der Elsken, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Luc Timmers, Herbert Ponting, Cas Oorthuys, Sem Presser and Willem van de Poll and more.
The exhibition On the road - Travelling with the photographer in the Dutch National Archives ran from September 9 2016 to January 8 2017.
Visit the exhibition The world of the Dutch East India Company from the 24th of February 2017
