Hamiltons Gallery presents Im Wald is a new series by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf, and is the first of his series to be photographed purely on location in the beauty of the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. “In The Forest” draws attention to several global issues, including climate change, wanderlust, immigration and the COVID19 pandemic, directly investigating nature’s impact on our lives. Olaf highlights the role of people in isolation, staging them in visually astounding settings and examining their relationship to nature. The vastness of the landscape by comparison to the subjects, and the subjects’ empathy with the natural environment are dramatized by the scale of the images.
Unfortunately it is still a work in progress…!
