Advertising Photography by Ervin Olaf

Ervin Olaf

Erwin Olaf is a Dutch photographer. Olaf is most famous for his commercial and personal work. He has been commissioned to photograph advertising campaigns for large international companies such as Levi’s, Microsoft and Nokia. Some of his most famous photographic series include "Grief", "Rain", and "Royal Blood". Never one to shy away from controversy, Olaf’s work is often daring and provocative. Humorously however, one of his early photographs was once expelled from a show on the basis of not containing nudity.

His work has received many awards and he has held exhibitions around the world. Olaf studied journalism in the School of Journalism in Utrecht.

Erwin Olaf has show in galleries and museums all around the world as for example at Flatland Gallery, Utrecht ; Hasted Hunt, New York; Galerie Magda Danysz, Paris; Gallery Espacio Minimo, Madrid ; B&D Gallery, Milan ; Miller Gallery, New York Crown Gallery, Brussels ; Reflex Gallery, Amsterdam etc.
