The Dutch have given us many great things: Van Gogh, stroopwaffels, and legalised wacky tobbacky to name a few. And now Dutch photographer Olaf Veltman.
Inspired by The Golden Century of Dutch painters, his lines are long and his angles are wide. Many of his photographs have a painting-like composition, fusing a sense of foreboding yet also vulnerability.
Veltman now works for all of the big names earring the big bucks, must recently doing advertising campaigns for the likes of Stella Artois. He's the type of man that can say, "Hmm, I don't like the view out of that office building's windows. Hark! Get me a helicopter! We will right these photographic wrongs! To the oil rig!"*
