Royal Blood Series By Erwin Olaf

Photographer Erwin Olaf’s series ‘Royal Blood’ depicts various historic royal figures like Marie Antoinette, Lady Diana, Julius Ceasar as rendered by the gruesome circumstances of their violent deaths. The victims appear mutilated and covered in gore while they stare at the viewer with sinister yet clinical indifference. About Royal Blood Series; “People don‘t have to like what I do. I‘m happy as long as I get them to talk about the issues,” Olaf said.
‘’Erwin Olaf’s art implicitly visualises the unspoken, the overlooked, that which typically resists easy documentation. Olaf’s trademark is to address social issues, taboos and bourgeois conventions within the framework of a highly stylised and cunning mode of imagery. With the aid of his razor-sharp aesthetic intuition, Olaf purposely conceals his themes so that the viewer unconsciously and initially accepts the concealment found in his photo series. Yet in the end, his unconventional style never fails to deliver dramatic visual and emotional impact. By providing scenic and striking design, along with the utmost perfect composition in his typical, immaculate ‘OWN’ style, combined with his passion for conceiving flawless scenarios, he vividly captures the essence of contemporary life.’’ Via: erwinolaf.com
