From the curatorial effort of the EU project 1950s in Europe Kaleidoscope, every week on Friday there’s a new set of carefully selected photographs to be explored on the project’s website.
Today we present “Photonovels of the 1950s”, a gallery selected by Clarissa Colangelo at KU Leuven.
Lumière sur les coeurs is a photonovel published in Belgian magazine “Chez Nous” from 1958.
De Liefde van Valerie was instead published in Belgian magazine “Ons Volk” in 1959.
From the collections of the Royal Library of Belgium.
