The ‘Nederlands Fotomuseum’ in Rotterdam will open (if the corona-regulations allow it) on 26 May 2021 the Gallery of Honor of Dutch photography, where 100 photos can be seen. The images all have iconic value, due to their social and artistic significance. Together they tell the story from the beginning of photography in the Netherlands to the present day (1841-2021). The highlights, the innovations, the enormous steps photographers made from the invention of the photo to the innovations at the beginning of the 21st century. An extra room of 2,000 m2 has been added to the museum especially for the Hall of Fame. With each photo information is given about the background and the reason why this photo has been included in the Hall of Fame and what makes the image so special.
