Olivier Valsecchi is a French photographer, born in 1979. He studied photography at ETPA Photography School in Toulouse, France. As a teenager, he used to produce music.

Before his decision to enroll at ETPA Photography school and hone his technique, Valsecchi did only self-portraits for ten years. His working process is based entirely on his personal intuition, from planning to capturing the image. His works center around the themes of death, birth, rebirth and maternity.

Le Petit Olivier, Vincent Dixon

HyperFocal: 0


Street photography was my first love and it is something I’ve always done. In my early twenties, I moved from my childhood home in Kilkenny, Ireland to Paris, France. I was a post grad science student in Paris, devouring the humanistic work of Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith & Andre Kertesz. Through a series of serendipitous events, my unearthed passion for photography evolved into a career as a commercial photographer.

All of my commercial work is informed by my attraction to street photography, in that I’ve always tried to make photos that had the spontaneity of a reportage photo despite their construction. It is not always easy but the instincts built up by constantly shooting for myself help.

In 2011, I took a sabbatical from commercial photography and went on a year-long journey around the world with my wife and four children. It was a priceless experience to share authentically new experiences with my family, as well a time to submerge myself in creating photo-essays of our travels; I was free from the confines of a working schedule.

By the summer of 2012, with my year abroad coming to an end, I was excited to get back to work. My travel journeys initiated the debut of a collection of images and stories titled, “Wanderings.” The lines between personal and commercial work are blurred as I commit with each photograph to tell the story.

Chinatown, Franck Bohbot

1

Located in southern Manhattan, Chinatown has evolved over time, expanding at a rapid pace due to its growing population, by nibbling on the borders it shares with the Lower East Side and devouring Little Italy. The Chinatown in Flushing, Queens, is currently the most populated. Still today, a large part of Chinatown operates with a parallel economy. In the 90s, the Chinese community began to invest in other neighbourhoods in the Lower East Side, which Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe had populated fifty years earlier. Currently, the Lower East Side is predominantly a Puerto Rican and Dominican community, although the Chinese have definitely made their mark in recent decades. In this series, Franck Bohbot took an off-beat approach to this bustling “Chinatown” cliché.

These shots embrace the absence of typical daytime noise, deliveries, lively streets, and tourist visits. Silence reigns.

Half-way between poetry and science fiction-like movie sets, through this nocturnal series with New York City as the sole backdrop, he invites us to discover an empty, motionless neighbourhood devoid of its inhabitants. Deserted streets, and the rare, almost UFO-like passerby dropped on quasi-unreal urban sites, resemble fiction more than typical photographic reporting. Marrying colorimeter and urban lighting, combining technique with photographic patience, and wanting to bring life to nighttime characters or basic storefronts were all challenging. With his camera by his side, some images were shot instinctively while others are more contemplative. The result is an enigmatic voyage that creates a pictorial and fantasy-like universe in the thick of night.

Denis Dailleux

1

1

Born in 1958 in Angers, France.

Lives in Cairo. Imbued with his distinctive delicacy, Denis Dailleux’s photographic work appears calm on the surface, yet is incredibly demanding, run through by an undercurrent of constant self-doubt and propelled by the essential personal bond he develops with those (and that which) he frames with his camera.

His passion for people has naturally led him to develop portraiture as his preferred means of representing those whose true self he feels an urge to get closer to. Which he has, with actress Catherine Deneuve as well as with countless anonymous subjects from the slums of Cairo, working with the same discretion, waiting to get from his subjects what he is hoping they will offer him, without ever asking for it, simply hoping that it will happen. That is how he has patiently constructed a unique portrait of his beloved Cairo to create, with black and whites of exemplary classicism and colors of rare subtlety, the definite alternative to the heaps of cultural and touristic clichés which clutter our minds.

Dani Olivier is a French photographer. He lives and works in Paris. This website features his experimental photographic work from 2014 to 2015.

Dani Olivier creates his effects at the time of the shoots, by projecting complex images and intricate light patterns on his models. He never touches up the originals.

The models are nude. They do not wear enhancing accessories. Their make up is minimal.

The pictures are taken with a black background. There are no artifacts: just the models and the light projection. The projections are either abstract or figurative.                                                                       

The final composition is always surreal.

Dani Olivier’s abstract and psychedelic nudes are his exclusive creations. They confer a new dimension and innovative approach to the art of nude photography.
