Photographs by Olaf Nicolai.
Artimo, Amsterdam, 2006. 88 pp., 43 color illustrations, 11x13½".
The titular blondes are the 43 subjects of this
series of “after” pictures, taken during the month
that Olaf Nicolai ran a beauty parlor at the center
of Tilburg in the Netherlands. He offered to bleach
visitors’ hair free of charge in exchange for permission
to use images of them in his work. Other
things about the salon were a bit off, too—instead
of the usual product advertisements, the walls
were decorated with prints of artworks involving
blondes, by artists ranging from Andy Warhol to
Vanessa Beecroft, Karen Kilimnik and many others.
