Francois Ollivier is a self-taught photographer. Born in the south of France. He now lives in Montreal.
Ollivier states: I wish I had a great story about inheriting my first camera from my grandfather or something like that, but no. I simply bought it in a store. I’ve studied languages worked as a lighting designer for shows, and spent several years being a creative ad guy. I now focus on my photography, based on observation and magnifying the simplest things. I trust providence (not the religious definition though) and patience.
