Erwin Olaf’s Clown ‘Paradise’
Is the Best Bad Trip

February 27, 2013 | Eugene Reznik

Never has coulrophobia been realized so perfectly than with this glossy, sinister, saturated clown bondage-fest titled Paradise The Club.

This gloriously grotesque series by Amsterdam-based photographer Erwin Olaf is one of the more figurative interpretations of the theme behind the current issue of Foam Magazine, “#33/Trip” — “about the sense of being in transit, in a place or in a dimension where things are different from the way they are at home, or in real life.”

Thanks for the mesmerizing photographs, Olaf, and the imminent sleepless nights.
