About the artist:

Hungarian-born Ata Kandó (1913-2017) studied photography in her native country, but it was in Paris in the 1940s and 50s where she truly honed her craft. She worked in the Magnum lab and it was here that she met the man who would later become her husband, Dutch photographer Ed van der Elsken. Kandó moved to Amsterdam with him in the mid-1950s, but the marriage quickly ended. In 1957, she published the first edition of her iconic photobook Dream in the Woods, starring her children as the main characters in one of the first photo novels, and marking her breakthrough as an artist. Kandó went on to become one of the most prolific female Dutch photographers of the 20th century.
