Portrait_Olivier_Chamard.jpg

I was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1972.

Photography started in 1993 at the age of 21 when I got immersed in the alternative life of Geneva. Photography then followed my life stream, which led me to Argentina where I worked as a photographer for a national newspaper and then to Spain, where I studied cinema.

My preference for documentary photography also allowed me to live the intensity of the corridas in Nîmes or to be able to testify about the creativity of social life in the squats of Geneva.

Photographers like Lucien Clergue, Sebastiao Salgado, Andreas Gursky, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, irving penn, Raymond Depardon... and movie makers such as Claude Lelouch, Wim Wenders, Costa-Gavras, Jean Pierre Melville... are among my inspirations.

I now live in the Geneva region and my work includes portraits, architecture photography, documentary photography as well as different assignments.
