About the artwork

America resonates like a promise, an invitation, or a fantasy for the photographer. When he was a teenager, Olivier Lavielle travelled along Route 66 with his parents, which today no longer officially exists, but that remains legendary within the collective imaginary. This cinephile came back from his road trip with his head full of images. Even now, he continues to follow the path of all those who have headed out West, stopping to capture cars that remain the living testaments of a wonderful era. As an aesthete of the past, Olivier Lavielle only photographs old models that have become collector's pieces and highlights the perfect aerodynamics of their delicately aggressive mechanics. With the series Americana he seeks the perfect moment between a scorching afternoon and a balmy summer's evening. A sumptuous array of colours is revealed, between the unrivalled blue of a Californian sky, the red of ancestral sand on the border of Utah and Arizona, or the peaceful green of a royal palm tree or Saguaro cactus.
