Erwin Olaf: I Am – (Hardcover) Description:

Erwin Olaf: I In honor of Erwin Olafs 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images in black and white with his now-iconic color work including selections from his most recent and heretofore unpublished series shot in Shanghai.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 Olafs 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: I Am – (Hardcover)
