Ap Gewald (1954)

I have known Ap now for over 40 years and never have seen him as an accomplished and talented photographer. Ap was the man who made the exhibitions in the Gemeentemuseum and abroad possible . Arranging logistics and building with his team the many beautiful exhibitions at the Gemeentemuseum.

Next to the museum, within a distance of 200 meters of the main building by Berlage a small and unmistakenly typical ‘HAAGS’ coffeeshop can be found. The name ….” Koffiehuis ‘t STATENPLEIN #. This is the place where Ap takes his photographs. Locals that visit the koffietent are being photographed and because of the black and white photography it gives a highly authentic, even a classic feel.

The book itself is impressive in its simple design. Silver and blacks dominate the design. With 88 pages and from an edition of only 250 copies it is at a price of euro 12,50 an absolute steal and a must for the serious photography collector. Book is available at ( sent and signed by Ap Gewald). For information and availability of the photographs please inquire at
