Stuck in New York Couture!

Featured Photographer Extraordinaire
Erwin Olaf

"New York Times Couture"
When I first came across these photos I was completely blown away. I knew there was something special about this photographer. Each photo was stunning and the graphic effects were very creative and ingenious! Just take a look for yourselves below:

About Edwin Olaf:
Born in Hilversum in the Netherlands in 1959, Erwin Olaf lives and works in Amsterdam since the early 80's. His current studio is situated in a former church hall. Over the years many of Olaf's work have provoked controversy. Not surprisingly, this ability to attract attention has seen his work embraced by the advertising world, resulting in commercials for Lavazza, BMW, Microsoft and Nintendo among many others. Lately Erwin is frequently shooting in commission for magazines such as The New York Times Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine, Elle and Citizen K.

In 1999 his worldwide campaign for Diesel Jeans won him the coveted Silver Lion at the Festival for Advertising in Cannes. He was awarded the same prize two years later for his imagery produced for Heineken. Among numerous other international art and media prizes, in 2006 he was awarded Photographer of the Year in the International Color Awards. In 2007 Kunstbeeld magazine chose him Artist of the Year of the Netherlands. Recently he received a Lucie Award for his entire oeuvre.

What do you think of Edwin Olaf's work? Would you like to see more of his fabulous photos?  I think he is one of the most cutting edge photographers of the 21st century.  If you agree or disagree, or would like to share with me the name of your favorite photographer?  You know I always love to read what you have to say, so leave a comment and don't forget to
"Tell'm I told you!"

Creatively that's awesome, though something about the clear comparison of women to inanimate objects really creeps me out.

Absolutely incredible images. A real mix of futuristic with some classically romantic dresses.
