Erwin Olaf's early black and white photographs are being exhibited at Espacio Minimo Gallery in Madrid, Spain.

The exhibition runs through January 17th, 2015.

From Espacio Minimo:

But before that first encounter with our gallery, ERWIN OLAF had realized an earlier project, a series executed in a purer black and white format, one which seems to lack sufficient attention to it, perhaps eclipsed by the brilliance of his subsequent works, but one that was already established and personal, in which some of the most definitive characteristics of his work begin to appear, and from which one can discern the inspirations of many subsequent series by the artist.

These are the early works in black and white, photographs never hung before in our  past shows of the artist, that we have chosen to bring back so that we may, with the perspective of the past that time provides us, and taking into account the work that followed, we can judge the series with a new, more accurate metric.
