Welcome to Gustave’s Picture Library.

Gustave Petit (1954-2016) was an inspired amateur photographer who left a body of work we believe is worth exploring.

Click HOME to find the newest additions to the Picture Library. New photos will be added regularly.

Most buttons at the top of the page go to information pages in Dutch. If that’s not your best language, you’ll find several English language pages in the scroll-down menu under the button IN ENGLISH.

This library is run by Gustave’s heirs.
It comprises scans of analogue negative and diapositive photography, in black & white and colour, polaroids, digital images and photo montages, cartoons and ready-mades. All images are tagged for place name, and categorized for technique and for year.

Please note that all images published here are copyrighted. This means that if you want to share or re-publish a photo, we expect you to mention its maker’s full name like this: Photo © Gustave Petit. If you want to use a photo and have a commercial objective, conditions apply, and we expect you to contact us beforehand.

Feel free to send us your questions, reports and comments through the form under CONTACT at the top of the page. Some days may lapse in case a response is needed, but respond we will, so please bear with us.

Thank you for your visit, and do come again.
On behalf of Gustave’s heirs,
Laura (Gertrudsdottir)
