11 June - 12 September 2010. Erwin Olaf is an award-winning photographer and film maker with an international reputation. Born in Holland in 1959, Olaf's work tends to be both ironic and provocative.
For his 12 works in this exhibition, he gained inspiration from the photographs of US photographer Frances Benjamin Johnston who became famous in 1900 with her series of African-American students in Virginia, most of whose lives were still overshadowed by their status as freed slaves. Olaf regularly contributes to international publications while his work is exhibited in major American museums.
