Erwin Olaf: Grief

Photographer and filmmaker Erwin Olaf brings back his stylish combination of art, fashion and emotion to his new series called Grief. Olaf’s highly-stylized and digitally-manipulated pictures bring the beauty and glamor back into being depressed. Lone figures wearing perfect clothes and waiting in perfect rooms stare woefully at the floor or out the window, or wipe tears from their eyes. Even his color palette is flawlessly melancholy. His work was recently featured on the cover of the launch issue of Spread Art Culture Magazine. You can see more of his work, including his commercial campaign images for Diesel, Mooi and Kohler, on his website
