Olivier Lavielle

Banana Split

About this photograph

According to the photographer, the only way to discover the American continent is by car. He compares the latter to cowboys? mounts. Olivier Lavielle provides us with an escape route along Route 66. By connecting Chicago to Los Angeles, Route 66 crosses the United States from one end to the other. In 1926, it was the first tarmacked transcontinental road in the United States. Route 66 may have lost its official existence in 1985, but it remains mythical in our collective imagination. Olivier Lavielle has of course taken this road. He follows the well-trodden path towards the west. Along the route, in service stations, or abandoned on the verge, Lavielle stops to photograph cars. Corvettes and Buicks remain the symbols of an America ahead of its time. The American dream seems to be summed up by these vehicles representing modern battle steeds ready to conquer new territory.

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! '
