Oliver Lavielle is a fan of the period between the â€˜30s and the â€˜70s. His world is full of jazz, swing, blues, rock â€™nâ€™ roll and a hint of disco.

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.
