"Van der Elsken's blend of informal photojournalism and diaristic note-taking set a precendent for the sort of engaged personal book works that Larry Clark and Nan Goldin would make decades later...."--Vince Aletti, The Book of 101 Book, p. 147.

"Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken was part of the scene in Paris at the time, and in 1956, he published a ground-breaking photobook called Love on the Left Bank. His gritty, sexy, black-and-white photos of bohemian life in Paris captured a reckless, carefree, decadent and hedonistic love for life. A fictional text and captions (corny, for sure), accompanied the photos in the book."--Jim Casper, Lens Culture.
