Cas Oorthuys ( continued)

Cas Oorthuys

Last week Linda and I went to Rotterdam and visited the Nederlands Fotomuseum. The museum made a selection of 99 of the most iconic dutch photographs from the last 160 years. Among them well known examples by famous dutch photogra[phers, nut some that i never had noticed before. The one photo that fascinated me most was the one Cas Oorthuys took in the Rotterdam harbour. The photo has everything. action, drama, mouvement and it gives a perfect impression of the Rotterdam harbour in the late Fifties.

Later this month i will select some more photographs from this visit, but this. is for now my personal favourite.
