Erwin Olaf - I AM




  • ERWIN OLAF - I AM

    On the occasion of Erwin Olaf's sixtieth birthday, the photographer presents the first extensive overview of his work. The fist-sized book with 240 photographs shows both his earliest black-and-white images and his iconic free work, up to the latest – and until now unpublished – series he made in Shanghai and Palm Springs. The photo book accompanies a large retrospective at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, the Fotomuseum in The Hague and the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. The exhibition also travels to other locations in Europe, China, South Korea and the United States. I AM is published in different countries, in different languages, in different covers, by different publishers.
