Limited-Edition Portfolio of Photographs by Erwin Olaf

Internationally acclaimed Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf delivers strong emotional impact with his highly stylized mode of image making. On the occasion of his fiftieth birthday, the artist turned his lens on himself,
creating a series of illustrative self portraits to mark the occasion. With
 self-explanatory titles, the works in the Self Portrait - 50 Years Old 
series depict how the artist looks now, how he wishes he looked now, and 
forecasts how he will look in the future. Olaf speaks not only to his own 
aging, but to our culture's obsession with youth and beauty and the
 prevalent use of post-production techniques like Photoshop, particularly in
the world of fashion photography to create unrealistic notions and
expectations of those very things.

Aperture published the artist¹s monograph, Erwin Olaf, in 2008.

Erwin Olaf (born in Hilversum, the Netherlands, 1959) is a commercial and fine art photographer. He graduated from the Utrecht School for Journalism 
in 1980 with a degree in newspaper journalism and photojournalism. Olaf has 
earned several Silver Lions for his commercial work, which is increasingly 
sought after by magazines such as the New York Times Magazine, London Sunday
 Times, and Vanity Fair. He is represented by Flatland Gallery, Utrecht/Paris
and Hasted Hunt Krauetler, New York.
