Born in France in 1979. He studied at ETPA Photography School, Toulouse, 2007.
Olivier produced music as a teenager, and became interested in photography after taking photos to illustrate his record sleeves. He spent 10 years simply producing self portraits for enjoyment and to develop his process, before enrolling at photography school to really hone his technique.
Olivier finds that his entire working process, from planning and constructing a series, to the moment of capturing an image, is based on his personal intuition. As if sprung from some unbridled unconsciousness, the photographs evoke death, birth, maternity and rebirth.
