Algemeen Hollands Fotopersbureau, 1945-1969 (General Dutch Press Photograph Agency)

 Milkman, 1953As founder, owner, director and often sole photographer of the Algemeen Hollands Fotopersbureau (General Dutch Photo Press Agency), Ben van Meerendonk documented changes as they occurred in the Netherlands in the 1950s and 1960s. After many years of oblivion, his photography has since been rediscovered and has recently again gained wide popularity.

1900 photographs offer a good overview of Van Meerendonk's specialties: reportages on Dutch celebrities at home, international stars visiting the Netherlands, everyday occurrences on the streets of Amsterdam, and sports photography. The pictures originate from the 75,000 negatives in the Ben van Meerendonk/Algemeen Hollands Fotopersbureau collection.
