In honor of Erwin Olaf s sixtieth birthday, Erwin Olaf: I Am presents the first comprehensive survey of his work, bringing together his earliest images in black and white with his now-iconic color work, including selections from his most recent and heretofore unpublished series shot in Shanghai. This chronological presentation traces the evolution of the artist from cheeky provocateur to royal portraitist, as well as the refinement of his unique vision and stylistic panache over the last four decades. Interspersed among the various series is a wry, incisive commentary by Olaf on the contexts of and inspirations for his work.
The book is published to accompany the largest retrospective of Olaf s work to date, a multiple-venue show that will encompass installations at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; Gemeentemuseum Den Haag; and Fotomuseum Den Haag. Launching in February 2019, the show will subsequently travel to other venues in Europe, Shanghai, and the United States.
Erwin Olaf is a Dutch photographer known for his stylized portraiture. Like Gregory Crewdson, Olaf stages his large-scale images in a cinematic fashion with orchestrated sets and dramatic lighting. His practice often explores issues of historical and contemporary importance as seen in his Royal Blood series which depicts the deaths of royalty.
Interior is in excellent condition, front cover and spine in good condition with slight dirt marks by the edges. There is a bend/crack at the back by the bottom left corner as shown.
