Born in 1985 in Geneva where he lives and works, Lucas Olivet graduated from the Vevey School of Photography. Represented by the gallerist and publisher Jörg Brockmann (Geneva), his different series have received numerous awards including the Swiss Photo Award, Fine Art category, in 2016. His work has been exhibited at Photobastei in Zurich, at 104 in Paris and at Photoforum in Biel.
Lucas Olivet’s photographs capture living and intimate details of everyday life by inserting a touch of supernatural. They evoke a world that becomes one way or another identifiable and unstable at the same time. Each series operates a narrative mode through their arrangement and sequence installing a space of interpretation to the viewer.
