Francois Ollivier is a self-taught photographer. Born in the south of France, he has lived and worked in Montreal since 2011. he wish he had a great story about inheriting his first camera from his grandfather or something like that, but no. he simply bought it in a store.
He has studied languages, worked as a lighting designer for shows, and spent several years being a creative ad guy. He now focus on his photography, combining artistic and documentary / commercial practices.
“I trust providence (not the religious definition though) and patience. My approach is based on wandering and accepting the impromptu. I use photography to make simple factual observations and also to gather people, places, lines or lights in a set up that magnifies the simplest things.”
