For almost half a century, boxes filled with photographs by Hans Bruggeman had been waiting patiently in the family home until the day his daughter, Lotus, would find them. Portraits of people her father associated with in the 1960s and ’70s in Amsterdam. Years when the Dutch capital flourished as a progressive and artistic haven, when counterculture, experimentation, and the spirit of the underground emerged to define the city’s cultural life. It was the time of Provo, De Kabouters, happenings, and the liberalisation of drugs and sexuality. ‘Wildflowers’ assembles more than a hundred photos in a single volume, lovingly selected by Lotus and with a musical playlist to match.
