Outro Merkelbach Dansperformance at Stadsarchief Amsterdam
"Jacob Merkelbach opened his portrait studio in Amsterdam in 1913. From every photograph he created a work of art, and soon customers came to his studio in the prestigious Hirsch building at the Leidseplein from throughout the Netherlands.
The Amsterdam City Archives has since decided to digitise the precious collection to ensure that it will be preserved.
The website was launched on 4th April 2013 with an important public campaign and a gala evening at the City Archives. On 13th September 2013 an exhibition and publication dedicated to Merkelbach will be opened. The exhibition ends on January 5th, 2014.
This animation was part of the opening of the exhibition."
