Denis Olivier, artist and photographer born in 1969, in France and currently lives in Bordeaux, France. He was working as an artist for several years, until digital cameras came along and Denis found a way to work quickly and experiment without using too many resources such as film, chemicals, photo sensitive paper. He is the founder of Art Limited
It is funny and really interesting how he describes his first contact with photography.
“My first encounter with photography took place when my parents performed some strange static dances with an object in front of their face. Later they would close themselves up in a special room under the house for long periods of time, and no one was allowed in. They diligently made sure that they were left to their own devices while inside. One day I was given permission to enter the room and allowed to stay, but on the condition that I didn’t move or went out. I remember there was a unique chemical perfume and a red light.
I was bewildered: my parents appeared flashing a white light on a piece of paper using a strange apparatus. Then they dipped it into a clear liquid and Behold! I couldn’t believe it, A miracle! They were wizards who created pictures.”
