Until May 20, the gallery W exhibits the latest photographs of Olivier Dassault: twenty double exposure and a totemic installation (double-sided photographic sculptures composed of five two meters pieces that he explains as follows: “Faithful to analog photography and my Minolta XD7, I have always improvised prints, with multiple exposures.I compose instant graphic harmonies, trying to defy appearances.I let myself be surprised and I observe at the same time the depth of the focus and perspectives to reveal the singularity of things.I like to work as much on small details as with very large structures, to which I give a rhythm, playing with the compressions, even the expansions.
Jean-Jacques Aillagon says of his work: “Olivier Dassault is in the flow of abstract photography, but adds a subtle game on the materials that fascinate him. The work of a photographer is not limited to pressing the button, it continues thri processing and printing. When an artist pays special attention to printing, it’s a way to underline his general commitment to the art of photography!
