Olivier Longre’s profession is music but his oldest passion is photography. He has always practiced these two disciplines in the same way and his approach to both is exactly the same: colour, texture, silence and brightness being his main inspirations. He has always enjoyed the close association between music and an image, be it a still or moving image.
“Paradoxically, what interests me most is not the immediacy of the shot but the duration; the wait, the absence, the suspended moments, the poetry of the detail and the ‘almost nothing’, silent and enigmatic moments where the presence of the human being is only suggested. I also like to create more formal and graphic pictures, the balance of power between the animate and the inanimate, the masculine and feminine fusion.
I like to collect and organise my photos so that they create a story but do not give everything away, a story that everyone can invent from the perspective of their own life.”
