The images of the acclaimed Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf give visual expression to the unspoken, the unnoticed. His masterful aesthetics draw a veil over the themes he touches, with the aim of causing unease and irritation in the viewer. His stylized imagery touches mostly on taboos, social conflicts and middle-class narrowness.
Within the framework of the 6th European Month of Photography, Bar Kosmetiksalon Babette is presenting photos from the Fall series (2008) as well as from the film Le Dernier Cri (2006).
As part of the Month of Photography's main exhibition at the Martin Gropius Building, a selection of Olaf's carbon prints from the Berlin series (2013) will be presented as part of a group exhibition titled Memory Lab: The Sentimental Turn / Photography Challenges History.
