Cornelis Jaring was born on December 18, 1936 on one of the ‘islands’ of Amsterdam. Most well known is his photographie work on Provo* the Amsterdam hippie-movernent of the 1960s. But from an aesthetical and social perspective his pictures of the Amsterdam harbour are certainly more impressive. Jaring was and is a man of the street. When young he did all kinds of jobs in the harbour of Amsterdam, and assisted his father in his second~hand shop. It was in military service that Jaring first met photography. and although he is a deserving painter too, he never left photography again. He felt at home in the streets of Amsterdam, and photographed people at work, the red light district, the markets, the harbour. In 1962, the year of his first exposition, he ran into Robert Jasper Grootveld, who was to become one of the heroes of Dutch Provo. Jaring followed, covered and became famous with his photographs of the roaring sixties. His Provo-photographs are a sign of the time: dark, quick, moments of great anxiety and activity.
