The famous fashion and advertising photographer Erwin Olaf chose Berlin as set design for this latest series, interacting with the city spaces and architecture.
Into his pictures you can see thecapacity of capturing solitude, remorse and sadness in his sumptuous compositions.
When I saw for example this photo for the first time, set at the Berlin Fechthalle in Westend, I seem to see the the loneliness of harlequins by Pablo Picasso of his Blue period. Character seem quite so hopelessly cut off from the rest of the world here as in the paintings of the Blue Period.
Then all his work as you can find also the study of light that recalls the Nordic and Flemish painting.
Amongthe locations used for this series: Clärchens Ballhaus Mitte, Stadtbad Neukölln, Rathaus Schöneberg, Altes Stadthaus Mitte, Olympia Stadion Westend, Freimaurer Loge Dahlem.
