Amsterdam Vintage Photos from 1975 – Street Scenes

These amazing street scenes featuring vintage color photos of Amsterdam in 1975 were captured by Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken.

Ed van der Elsken was born in 1925, in Amsterdam, the city he loved and where he shot most of his street photography pictures, capturing the day-to-day life of the people living and passing by through the capital city of The Netherlands.

Throughout his life, Ed van der Elsken worked in Paris, Central Africa, Japan and traveled all over the world, taking photographs of people and places that impressed him the most, trying to portray the pure essence of the things he saw.

After being diagnosed with cancer in 1988, he couldn’t beat the disease and died in 1990, leaving his outstanding work behind, as a legacy, showing the whole world how life in different parts of the world used to be from the late 1940’s all through the late 1980’s.
