Burnt-out cars, abandoned drop-offs, eccentric local residents and half-demolished neighbourhoods - The Hague captured by photographer Frederick Linck.

Photographer Frederick Linck (1942-2020) shows the decay of the city centre of The Hague, of a world about to disappear, in his photographs from the 1970s. There, he captures the demolition of the dilapidated, old city. People especially have his attention. He creates melancholic and disarming portraits of his neighbours: from the homeless and caravan dwellers to neighbourhood kids and shopkeepers. Outside the city centre, Linck also finds inspiration in 'popular' The Hague - at the Haagse Markt and the annual fair on Malieveld, he makes several photo series.

Frederick Linck's photos show a decade of neglect and demolition, but also of the many people who stayed or found a new home in this raw neighbourhood. Thanks in part to protests by local residents, the municipality's policy changed. In the 1980s, the demolition of the city centre was halted by action groups and a left-wing council.
