Olivier Simon Giachino was born in 1982 in Paris. Self-taught photographer, he has an intuitive approach to his art. In this world of imposed and perfected images he perseveres in searching and rehabilitating beauty and poetry of a subtile reality which is often blurred. . He works with a 24x36 camera ( Leica M-7, nikon FM3a or Olympus OM-2) and doesn't retouch or overprint. He thus keeps intact the anachronistic pleasure silver flm. JUST A SHOT! Naturally complicated. Hopefully surprising and beautiful.
His artistic journey has been characterized with under- and over- expositions and has led to a precise and honest approach which doesn't give way to concessions. Each set now reveals a facet of the man and has a recognizable style. In his work, words such as «Encounters, refexions, humor, surprise, complexity, perspectives» are conceptualized into series of photographies, where thoughts become stances.
