Erwin Olaf is a Dutch artist, born in 1959, lives and works in Amsterdam. After graduating at the Utrecht School for Journalism, he started his career as a fashion and advertising photographer. In 1988, he officially appeared on the international art scene when he won the Young European Photographer competition for his series Chessmen which, then, was the subject of an exhibition at the Museum Ludwig at Cologne, in Germany. Erwin Olaf now, is internationally known and his works are presents in the most prestigious collections of the world.
His laconic photographs freeze humanity by the light and gives life to it through the fine detail.
The conventions of the photographic medium and fashion photography are at the service of the magnificence of the model and his environment that is filled with mystery and melancholy. The artist plays, thus, the paradox between external beauty and inner reality. Indeed, his photographs or videos imply some issues and taboos of society, as gender politics. "I try to call out as much about form than substance." To do so, Erwin Olaf tries to go beyond the two-dimensionality of his works by his installation projects at exhibitions, inviting, and the viewer to project into space.
