Erwin Olaf - Mature

Another series from this Duch photographer. I had posted his fascinating tryptic about him past, present, future here. Don't know if he thought about his mum when he did the today's series called Mature, but it's another fascinating one, raising mixed feelings. There's something moving and some tenderness in these portraits, but also a certain cruelty, they are rather pathetic actually. But these women (they have all a name, from top to bottom: Christy, Cindy, Claudia, Jerry, Linda, Kate, Nicole) have still something sexual in them that they would have certainly lost in acting and looking as women of their age are supposed to act and look. So, we are left with our perplexity, and it's better like this. His site here.
