Great Shot

Erwin Olaf is a very versatile photographer. He always explores through more elaborate staging and concepts in his series. I find this series, The Mother, by Erwin Olaf very interesting because of his use of black on black, and very faint lighting. The lighting creates a very soft and mysterious image which goes well with the theme. Other then the technical aspects of the photograph, I really enjoy the image because it is mysterious, and also dated. the actors are very staged and numb to each other. I seem to be attracted to mundane staging. As you look at the whole story Olaf tells if is a sequential event which helps the viewer understand. Olaf just continues to produce very luscious and beautiful prints that always catch my eye.
