About the artwork

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

Born in southwest France, Oliver Lavielle is a photographer in love with the period from the 1940s to 1970s. His world is tinged with jazz, swing, blues, rock'n 'roll and a pinch of disco. Unmoved by the contemporary aesthetic, his subjects are mostly expressed in black and white or a period-style colorimetry that his subjects best express. The photographer is fond of representing the atmospheres that he would've liked to experience for himself. Passionate about cinema, these compositions are dynamic and inspired by Hollywood stagings. It is in Asia and the United States that this insatiable globetrotter finds his inspiration. A pilot as a hobby, his photos of aircraft intimately portray the special relationship that he maintains with his \"toys\" as he likes to call them. Entering his world means travelling through time and since Olivier is also a steward for a French airline, a single phrase could sum up his work nicely: "Welcome aboard!"  ... See more See less

“My joy as a photographer is showcasing the heroism of aviation. Remembering that humanity is an explorative force! The sea and the air, challenging oneself, adventure... in a word, humanity.”
