Erwin Olaf is one of those photographers that magazine art directors and photo editors have on their list of “if-evers,” as in, “if ever I get the chance...” These photos were taken from a gallery of work he did for the New York Times, but Erwin Olaf has done work for hundreds of titles and brands known worldwide.

It's curious that Erwin Olaf's couture spread for the NYT in 2006 featured models fused into their surroundings. Since then, we've seen over a dozen examples of other artists and photographers who've chosen to obscure the faces of their models.
