Erwin Olaf

Netherlands  • 1959  - 2023


Erwin Olaf was a Dutch photographer known for his highly stylized, daring, and often provocative work addressing social issues and taboos. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Johannes Vermeer Award (2011), a Lucie Award (2008), and Photographer of the Year in the International Color Awards (2006). Among other accolades, Olaf received the commission to design the new national side of the Dutch Euro, launched in 2013. In 2008 and 2014, Aperture published volumes one and two of Olaf's self-titled monographs. Erwin Olaf: I Am was published by Aperture in 2019 to accompany the most extensive retrospective of his work to date, a multiple-venue show that encompassed installations at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; Gemeentemuseum Den Haag; and Fotomuseum Den Haag.
