Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf's work offers a blend of mid-century modern and noir aesthetics seen through a contemporary, fashion-infected lens. He seduces the viewer via a mannered, restrained palette with each richly coloured and sleekly composed image offering a sly reinterpretation of Norman Rockwell-like iconography and characters, manifesting a nostalgia that both burlesques and wryly celebrates America of the 1950s and 60s.
