These images are from Erwin Olaf and are among some of the most striking I have seen. Solid black on black really does create an absolutely amazing effect.
The photographs are from a collection called ‘Black,’ so there no surprises as to the artwork's color scheme. They were shown as a stand-alone exhibition by the artist. Looking closely at these images you realize how unattractive the subjects would be if they were shown in color--and just how clever this photographer is for choosing to capture them in all black.
Erwin Olaf's 'Black' Collection is Exceptional
