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

"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. READ MORE
