The current daily photo stream of the Dutch national press agency ANP consists of over 50.000 images from all over the world. For many decades, the domestic news photo production has been in the hands of professional photojournalists who cover the news in all disciplines; from hard spot news to features, from entertainment to sports, from politics to social documentary.
The oldest Dutch images in the photo database of ANP originate from the 1900s. Caption Photo Gallery (CPG) has the exclusive print rights for the collections of ANP. For Haute Photography, CPG has created a special collection of Rotterdam throughout its history.
With Rotterdam being the most no nonsense city of The Netherlands, its personality is shown throughout much of the imagery of the city; what you see is what you get. Our collection presents many aspects of this personality and history, starting with the great street scenery from the pre WW II, the subsequent bombardment of the city and the eventual postwar rising, with the modern architecture that inspired so many great Dutch shooters.
