While your classmates make ‘rabbit ears’ with their fingers at the teacher, you are fiddling with your trendy outfit and… flash! For the rest of your life you will be in the class photo with a photogenic face. Not everyone is happy with the school photo, but the Photo Museum would like to show it.

More than 100 Years worth of class photos will be shown by the Fotomuseum in The Hague at their new exhibition. And you (and your classmates) can also be framed on the wall.

Class photos wanted

For the exhibition ‘School – In love, bored, overslept’, the Photo Museum is looking for class photos taken between 640 and 2022. Can you help?

The museum hopes to show an overview of the class photo over the years in the exhibition. In addition to time, geographical spread is also important, so photos from all over the Netherlands, but also from primary and secondary schools in Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, New Guinea, the Dutch East Indies, Saba, Sint Eustatius, Sint Maarten and Suriname are welcome.

You and your (former) classmates

The overview that the museum has now collected is not yet complete and that’s why they ask for your help. For example, the photo museum still lacks photos from the period around the Second World War and from 1865 until 2020.

Do you have a special or very ordinary class photo? Then share it.

Scan the photo at 200dpi and send it to

stating class photo. A selection will be made from the entries. You can submit up to and including 03 March.
