Looking For Love on the Left Bank | Author: Tamara Berghmans

Dutch photographer and filmmaker Ed van der Elsken relocated to Paris in 1950. There he found a bohemian group, closely following and photographing their everyday movements, intertwining fiction and reality in a new genre of photography book.

The reconstruction of this process from unpublished documents contact prints, sketches, maps illuminates not only the nihilist worldview of the young people he befriends but also the cinematographic layout of the book, Love on the Left Bank. A fiction extracted from these documents confronts the original narrative that Van der Elsken established in the book, a visual story accompanied by a text by Tamara Berghmans.
