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.

MEMORY LAPSES

Memory Lapses are temporary installations I photograph to revisit places linked to strong memories, past or recent. They can peacefully blend in the landscape or be more chaotic, struggling with their environnement.
By overexposing reflective material in the process, data becomes absent from the digital file. This subtraction by light creates an empty zone in the image that alters reality and distorts our perception : like time and distance do.
It’s a project about remembering, or not forgetting the places we cherish, the ones filled wit emotions, love and history.
