Olivier Lavielle is a fan of the period between the ‘30s and the ‘70s. His world is full of jazz, swing, blues, rock ‘n’ roll and a hint of disco. Untouched by the aesthetics of the period, his subjects are best expressed exclusively in black and white. These dynamic compositions are inspired by Hollywood style. As a world traveller, Asia and the United States have inspired him. As a private pilot, his aircraft photos express the intimate, special relationship that he has with his toys, as he likes to call them. During his gateways, Olivier loves to search and meet wild animals to immortalized them as a testimonial of the weakness of our world. He tries is best to humanize them in view to create a relation of equality between them and us, always with his own well known style, always with the same poetic way he humanized those incredibles machines he loves. Entering his world, is a little like travelling in time.
