Reflex Gallery: Grief_Erwin Olaf

Amsterdam, the 28th of April 2007. Opening from an exhibition Grief with new work by the Dutch photographer and filmmaker Erwin Olaf. Grief is the third and final instalment of a triology. These are enigmatic narratives and portraits, mostly of woman, caught in private moments. Like in his earlier work, Rain and Hope, these images are staged, and the models seem caught in a moment of reflection or indecision. The images seem intended for a slick lifestyle editorial portfolio, but are unexpectedly moody and haunting. The impact is unsettling. An impression.
