Blacks: 17 Royal Portraits by Erwin Olaf (Dutch Edition)
by Erwin Olaf
Publisher's Description
According to Theo van Gogh's introduction, Erwin Olaf "conjures up the jollity of the concentration camp without needing barbed wire. . ., [freezing] people in the act of suffering pain or inflicting it on others." Obviously influenced by the work of Joel-Peter Witkin, in this volume (as well as in his 1988 Chessmen) Olaf poses his subjects in bizarre, demeaning, and provocative ways. Ornate costumes and stage sets add to the air of rococo decadence.
