»It takes a rare photographer like Olaf to get behind that mask, to reveal the vulnerable soul behind.
I do not wish to give myself easily to the eye of a camera unless the person holding it is at risk too.«
- Sting
»Olaf is blessed with a clear and inescapable German eye. You better run, or fight back.«
- Iggy Pop
