(″Liebe in Saint Germain des Prés“, Hbg. 1956). – Mit eigenhändiger Widmung von Ed van der Elsken für den belgischen Fotograf Gerald Dauphin (1938-2007). – „In 1950, van der Elsken moved to Paris. For him and other young artists from the Netherlands – and many other countries, incidentally – the French capital was absolutely the place to be in the post-war years. … In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a quarter on the Left Bank of Paris, van der Elsken started taking photographs of the eye-catching young Australian dancer, Vali Meyers, alone and with her friends, on the streets of the Latin Quarter and in the bars such as Chez Moineau. That bar was also frequented by the members of the Letterist International movement, such as Guy Debord (1931-1994) – co-founder of the Situationist International in 1957 – Gil J. Wolman (1929-1995) and their friends and sympathizers. „I found myself ampoung young Bohemians who were very passive, angry people. They occupied my thoughts, and I started photographing things as a reflex, almost like notes in the form of a diary.“ In 1956 a selection of this work appeared in his first book, the photo novel ‚Een Liefdesgeschiedenis in Saint-Germain des Prés‘.“ (Dirk Bakker in Heiting, Dutch photo publications). – Sehr gutes Exemplar.
