Wally Elenbaas 1912 - 2008 Photography Graphic Design

The very versatile Rotterdam artist Wally Elenbaas (1912 - 2008) is first and foremost a graphic artist, or as he himself puts it: 'A really good printer!' Photography has played an important part in his work too; in the 1930s he joined the workers/writers collective 'Links Richten' ['eyes left' Piet Zwart, Paul Schuitema and typograph Dick Elffers] as a photographer.
