Photographer of excellence, among the most appreciated in the contemporary art scene, the Dutch Erwin Olaf (1959) is to be considered one of the best interpreters of modern portrait photography: he is known worldwide for a photographic style dominated by mysterious atmospheres and contemplative, for its mise en scène and its theatrical compositions.
Olaf weaves complex and dramatic narratives into his shots. His works are striking for the strangeness, for the will to provoke, for the sense of solitude and restlessness: they catch glimpses of truth, which reveal the imperfection and fiction of an apparently perfect world.
This rich catalog represents a journey through the artist's entire production, offering a complete overview of his work: from the beginning with "Chessmen", the series that made him internationally famous, awarded at the Young European Photographer competition in 1988, until to the latest "Palm Springs" project (2018).
The volume contains a critical text by Walter Guadagnini and a conversation with the artist.
