Olivier Lavielle

Blade Runner

About this photograph

Planes from all over the world end their days in the Mojave Desert in California. Boeings and army planes, but also very old aircraft await their fate in the middle of nowhere in the blazing sun. An aesthete of past eras, Lavielle only photographs old models which have become collector?s items. Connoisseurs will recognise the DC-3s used to fight against Nazi Germany and the Fouga Magisters from the Patrouille de France. Black and white sublimates the lines of the aircraft. Whilst light reflects upon the cabin and the wings, one cannot help but think about ?L?Albatros? by Baudelaire pathetically letting their great white wings trail beside them.

The artist
Olivier Lavielle

Oliver Lavielle is a fan of the period between the ‘30s and the ‘70s. His world is full of jazz, swing, blues, rock ’n’ roll and a hint of disco. Untouched by the aesthetics of the period, his subjects are best expressed exclusively in black and white. These dynamic compositions are inspired by Hollywood style. As a world traveller, Asia and the United States have inspired him. As a private pilot, his aircraft photos express the intimate, special relationship that he has with his toys', as he likes to call them. Entering his world, is a little like travelling in time, and as Olivier is also a flight crew member for an airline company, only one thing remains to be said : ' Welcome on board! '
