RIP and Special Thanks to world respected photographer Erwin Olaf

In memory of Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, who kindly photographed me at his Amsterdam studio in 1983 when No More Walls was published in the Netherlands.

The Guardian published the following obituary:

The Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, who has died aged 64 following a lung transplant, straddled the world of art, advertising and fashion photography with a sumptuous cinematic and painterly aesthetic. Into his meticulously staged works he introduced subtle imperfections to stir disquiet in his audience: “There should be a riddle in every powerful image, so you are intrigued and invited to look over and over again.”

Here are the portraits Olaf made for me in 1983.  Thanks for the memories!
