Lucas Olivet (b. 1985) is a swiss photographer and graduated from the Vevey School of Photography.
Represented by the gallerist Jörg Brockmann in Geneva, his work has been published and exhibited
internationally, most recently at the Rencontres d’Arles, Paris Photo and Unseen Amsterdam (2018).
Kopiec Bonawentura, is his debut monograph (Kerber Verlag, Berlin, July 2018). The series
has been finalist for the Lange-Taylor Prize from Center for Documentary Studies, Duke
University (2017). His different series have received numerous grants and awards
including the Swiss Photo Award (2014 & 2016) and belong to different public
and private collections. Lucas Olivet’s photographs capture the living and
intimate details of the everyday life while inserting a touch of the
supernatural. They evoke a world that becomes, in one way
or another, identifiable and unstable at the same time.
Each work operates a narrative mode through their
arrangement and sequence giving the space for
interpretation to the viewer. It addresses
issues of memory, loss and longing
by way of his own life as well as
through a wider historical
and cultural frame.
