Educated in Vevey Photography School, born and based in Geneva,
Lucas Olivet images refer to everyday things.
Simultaneously, the photographs contain potential narratives made in familiar locations.
This fusion is the fracture he’s looking for.
It takes us into a fertile mental space where familiarity or stranger scenarios are generated.
An experience at once perceptual and phantasmic.
He won a special prize at The Swiss Photo Awards with the long term series Martisor in 2014 and has been the award winner in the Fine Art category in 2016 for his work Black Water Ballad, published by Editions JB.
