Olaf and Kerstens are two prominent, contemporary photographers from the Netherlands, who both have exhibited extensively around the world, now in Australia.
Erwin Olaf has had numerous important group and solo exhibitions both nationally and internationally. In 2013 Erwin Olaf's design for the new national side of the Dutch euro coins was selected from 12 designs by competing artists.
Hendrik Kerstens photographs were created from the desire to capture the relationship between every day scenes and events, projected against the images of Dutch painters of the seventeenth century. The austerity of the photographs, its clarity and the characteristic “Dutch” light all combine to create this impression.
