Erwin Olaf (1959) is a Dutch photographer from Hilversum, he now works and lives in Amsterdam.

‘In “Grief”, one of Erwin Olaf’s most acclaimed photo series, solitary figures brood in tearful silence. Loosely based on the style of American aristocracy in the early 1960s, these images blend historical detail with staged emotions. “Grief” is a series about the choreography of emotion, and what you can create in the studio,” explains Erwin Olaf. “So I wanted to ask the question: how does grief really look? What is the aesthetic of grieving?”’

– Jonathan Turner
