'Own' is the regular trade version, based on the limited edition that was published in November 2011 and sold out in the blink of an eye. It's a beauty, offering a wonderful overview in Mr. Olaf's work so far, which is diverse to say the least. To see people's faces when they leaf from the subdued photos from Rain or Grief to the explicit series like Fashion Victims or Squares is a blast. But most of all it's a beautifully produced homage to one of the best photographers Holland has ever seen. An instant MENDO Classic!
In May 2012 we had the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Olaf for a signing session - something we normally don't really like. The weather conditions were tropical, but the vibe from both the photographer and the crowd was just amazing.
