You feel the passion in every single image of Olivier Laselle´s work. Living in a gipsy place next to the ocean the French photographer has been behind the camera for 10 years already and captures his friends, sometimes nude, and everything that evokes a feeling.
How did you get involved in photography
I do not remember how it started. It could have been connected to the force to watch movies or to look at magazines. In any case I have been doing this for 10 years now and I struggle to live without it.
What do you want to capture in your work
I want to capture simple moments without artifice, capture a picture of people that I like and try to go to places that inspire me. For now I live in a caravan next to the sea and it’s really nice to enjoy everything I have around me to be able to take nice photos.
The essence of a perfect image
Oh, if I knew this sort of perfection that would be great. But I think that beautiful light and a nice shared moment necessarily creates also a beautiful picture.
Which camera do you use
Sometimes a Canon analog ftb and sometimes a 5dII Canon. I prefer to shoot with a fixed lens, the 35mm is my favourite.
And do you take your camera everywhere you go
Always! Even when I go shopping. You never know what scene you are passing by. Once I did not take it and I missed out on a great picture, so now I try to take it with me at any time.
