Through Feb. 18 at New York's Hasted Hunt Gallery, 529 W. 20th St., acclaimed Dutch ad shooter Erwin Olaf has his first U.S. show, featuring Lambda prints on Kodak paper and a style that The New York Times calls "less flamboyant than his commercial works but no less imaginative or technically slick. With costumed actors in sets evoking the mid-20th century Midwest," Olaf's photographs "look like scenes that Norman Rockwell's mordantly depressed cousin might have painted," The Times continues. "Each illustrates a moment in an emotionally charged narrative, with muted color and lighting enhancing a suspenseful, noirish atmosphere." Some images from the show are seen here, all courtesy of Hasted Hunt Gallery. See www.erwinolaf.com and www.hastedhunt.com for more.
