More than 10 years I published two posts in nr 646 and 649 about two articles from 1957 in the Dutch magazine Katholieke Illustratie, written by the Dutch writer A. den Doolaard, who was accompanied by the famous Dutch photographer Cas Oorthuys (1908-1975).
His complete collection, consisting of 447 contact albums with ten thousands of photos, is kept in the National Photo Museum in Rotterdam. Last year the museum started a crowdsource project, named “Captions for Cas”, a part of a large project aimed at preserving, digitizing and describing his archive.
I was lucky to do my share and describe the photos he took when he went to Athos in 1957, together with his friend A. den Doolaard.
And now the results are online available and the contact albums are to be seen on this site of the photomuseum .
