Hard cover book published by Hannibal
Erwin Olaf "IAM"
On the occasion of Erwin Olaf’s sixtieth birthday, the photographer presents the first extensive overview of his work. The fist-sized book with no less than 240 photographs shows both his earliest black-and-white images and his iconic free work, up to the latest – and until now unpublished – series he made in Shanghai and Palm Springs.
This chronological overview describes the unique vision of the artist and his evolution during the past four decades, from brutal provocateur in the Amsterdam nightlife to royal portraitist and master of the stillness. Olaf masters the art of photography down to the smallest details and offers a wry, penetrating commentary on the context of his work.
