"This jewel-toned box set includes each of Erwin Olaf's Aperture monographs: a copy of the first edition of Erwin Olaf, published in 2008 and currently unavailable in bookstores; and a copy of Erwin Olaf: Volume II, released in 2014. Accompanying these are two representative prints of images selected from Volume II. Both books bring together a number of series, showcasing the artist’s craftsman-like approach to creating stylized color studio images. The two prints, created at a smaller size than Olaf’s typical editions, offer a tantalizing amuse-bouche for fans of this artisan of atmosphere, who uses high polish to both perverse and seductive effects. Each pigment print in this box set was printed by the artist’s studio under the supervision of the artist. The set is limited to thirty numbered copies and five artist’s proofs. Each print, of photographs appearing in Erwin Olaf: Volume II, is signed and numbered by Olaf." Item #23546
