Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf is often called the singer of the human body. This is absolutely fair, because the master prefers models of athletic and even athletic physique. He is inspired by athletes, bodybuilders, ballet dancers and in general everyone who has an ideal body and has plasticity and grace. But this lens master also has a reverse side, with a completely opposite sign. They both get along perfectly and complement each other in this genius of photography. (Careful! Nude).

It's hard to imagine that Olaf started his career as a photojournalist. Commercial photography fascinated him almost by accident. He decided to just try and the world of gloss and chic pulled him headlong into its depths. At the same time, in an interview, the photographer often speaks disparagingly about commercial photography and even denies his involvement in this direction.

As if trying to prove it, Erwin Olaf sometimes presents unusual and even frightening series of pictures. Thanks to them, he also bears the title of a genius of "sickening beauty". Dark humor, blood, decay and ugliness are served by the master so skillfully that they cause not rejection, but interest and admiration.

Erwin Olaf does not worry at all about how others perceive his work. He is deeply convinced that only descendants can give an assessment to the creator. For this to happen, years must pass, as in the case of Munk and Van Gogh.
