My husband introduced me to the works of Ed van der Elsken, the Dutch photographer and filmmaker. I must admit I had never heard of him before, but once I got to see his work I was inspired and smitten by him. Below is a link to one of his films dedicated to Amsterdam, where he spent most of his life. He has traveled the world over documenting his travels, but “My Amsterdam” is my favorite. If anyone can be characterized as a flanuer, he would fit the bill.
