Foto Americain – Who are we?

Long ago in the 1980s, in a squat in The Hague, photographer Ernst Lalleman (1965) found six boxes containing 234 large-screen negatives. They turned out to be color portraits of mostly unknown residents of The Hague. They were made in the period 1959-1960 by Foto Americain, a photo shop and studio that was located at Wagenstraat 10 in the city center of The Hague.
