Exhibition was held in Basel, Paris and Rotterdam. Van Elk certainly was the post war period (early seventies) among the first to experiment in a new way with photography. In a general questioning of the image he brought together painting and photography and very often he did so in a very recognizable and humoristic way. He frequently used staged photography, photographic cut outs that he re-used in his paintings. He also extensively experimented with ‘the frame’ and other material aspects related to both photography and painting. This catalogue is a nice introduction in these aspects of his work.

1966 Amsterdam, Bezige Bij, 1966, 300x303mm, 182 pages and 154 gravure plates. Cloth. (PBC 75; Parr 254, 255)First edition. ‘Sweet life was the report of a world tour through Africa, Asia and America. Van der Elsken took charge of the design of the book himself. Similar to Jurriaan Schrofer’s book Bagara, most of the photographs crossed the gutter on a double page. Van der Elsken made deliberate use of the fact that the gutter in the page cuts the picture in two. In a photograph of Japanese Sumo wrestlers two men are standing facing each other in a fighting pose, surrounded by other wrestlers. The idea of a fight is strengthened in the picture by the fact that the gutter comes precisely between the two men, dividing the spectators also into two groups. A photograph that crosses the gutter like this is often experienced as disturbing because the picture is split in two. The advantage is that a photograph can be blown up to enormous proportions - in Sweet Life even to a size of 60 x 30 cm. There is a close-up, for example, in the book of Kasahara, one of the directors of Sony, displaying two transistor radios. His head and hands are reproduced larger than life, which gives the viewer the feeling of a direct confrontation. Sweet Life was Van der Elsken’s last photobook for the Bezige Bij.’(PBC 75)
