For his photographs and films, the Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf created a world staged down to the smallest detail. It is very similar to our own, but its artificiality gives it an enigmatic feel. Yet the works, with their visuals borrowed from the film and advertising industry, are luminous only on the surface; in fact, they deal with questions of democracy, equality or self-determination.

The coffee table book Strange Beauty presents essential aspects of Erwin Olaf's art and offers an attractive overview of his multifaceted oeuvre of the past forty years. Olaf's works, some of which were created especially for his exhibition at the Kunsthalle München, are also featured.

Erwin Olaf (1959-2023) studied journalism. He began his career as a photographer for magazines and journals, often with a socio-political background. In addition to commercial work, from the 1980s he produced an extensive body of artistic work. With his idiosyncratic style, Olaf quickly attracted international attention. His work is exhibited worldwide.
