What Hans Aarsman found at the Tropenmuseum
From its extensive collection of historical photographs, the Tropenmuseum presented a selection of images curated by Hans Aarsman, the Dutch Sherlock Holmes of photography.
Originally a photographer, the author Aarsman was invited by the Tropenmuseum to explore its photographic archive, which contains over 500,000 items, the majority of which relates to the former Dutch East Indies.
Catalog and audio tour
Accompanying the exhibition was an audio tour narrated by Hans Aarsman and a publication with a selection of photos from the exhibition.
“Only when pictures of bridges were being taken: the bridge had to be in the photo, and both banks. And then something of the landscape would naturally creep into the picture.” Hans Aarsman
