About Erwin Olaf
Erwin Olaf Springveld was a Dutch photographer based in Hilversum. His work has been described by Time magazine as being in “the worlds of commercial, art, and fashion photography all at once.” Olaf’s success in both his personal and professional life contributed significantly to his notoriety.
He was employed as a photographer by major international firms such as Levi’s, Microsoft, and Nokia to work on their own advertising campaigns. His photo series entitled “Grief,” “Rain,” and “Royal Blood” are all quite well-known. Because Olaf was someone who never shied away from controversy, his artwork was frequently dangerous and contentious. A comically inappropriate reason led to the exclusion of one of his early photographs from a show because it did not depict any nakedness.
His artwork was shown in a great number of exhibitions all over the world, and he was the honored recipient of a great number of awards. For his education in the subject of journalism, Olaf received it from the Utrecht School of Journalism.
His work has been shown in exhibitions at locations all over the world, including the Wagner + Partner Gallery in Berlin, the Flatland Gallery in Amsterdam, the Hamiltons Gallery in London, the Galerie Magda Danysz in Paris, and the Gallery Espacio Minimo in Madrid, to name just a few. Olaf is the designer behind the King Willem-Alexander portrait that appears on the Dutch euro coins issued in 2014.
