Born in 1985 in Geneva where he lives and works, Lucas Olivet graduated from the Vevey School of Photography. Represented by the gallerist Jörg Brockmann (Geneva), his work has been published and exhibited internationally, most recently at the Rencontres d'Arles and Unseen Amsterdam. Kopiec Bonawentura (Kerber Verlag) is his first monograph. His different series have received numerous awards including the Swiss Photo Award, Fine Art category, in 2016, and belong to different public and private collections.
Lucas Olivet’s photographs capture the living and intimate details of the everyday 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 series operates a narrative mode through their arrangement and sequence giving the space for interpretation to the viewer.
