Life of the Netherlands in the 1970s Through Amazing Black and White Photos

The 60s and 70s marked a period of great cultural and social change throughout the world, including the Netherlands.

Younger generation became engaged in things like rock and roll, sexual exploration, drugs, idealism, and informal clothes. They wanted to distinguish themselves from the past generation as much as possible. And they were successful.

As of result of this youth movement, religion began to fade into the background of Dutch society. Neighborhoods, cities, and countries became more secular, and religion was discussed less and less public – a practice that is still widely in affect to this day.

These amazing black and white photos were taken by Erik van Straten that show street scenes of the Netherlands, mostly Amsterdam in the 1970s.
