http://www.ojlphotographies.comLet me introduce myself, Olivier Jarry-Lacombe, self-taught photographer and globetrotter, lover of wide open spaces. After a career in finance for more than 15 years, I decided one day of 2017 to change my life and put my family and my passions for travel and photography at the center of my life. This decision and the desire to come back with exceptional images led me very quickly to undertake many long-term independent trips, by van, throughout Europe. These experiences have transformed me. They profoundly changed my perception of the world and changed the priorities I wanted to give to my life. I am lucky to have seen my work rewarded in some of the most prestigious international competitions and I am offering you today, through my shots, a look at my photographic work which, I hope, will please you and invite you to travel and chills. You can also follow me directly on my website www.ojlphotographies.com or via the social networks Facebook, Instagram & Linkedin by typing in your search "OJLphotographies"
I have always dreamed of traveling through the "northern territories", those located beyond the Arctic Circle and the 66th parallel, on the borders of the territory of the Sami, the last indigenous people of Europe. This is why in 2017, I decided to embark, in a van, on crossing the Nordic countries over more than 10,000 km. Since then, these countries with unique atmospheres and generous nature have never left my mind. I would even say that they obsess me and I look forward to each of my returns to go back there, to soak up the power released by the places, to stun me with the fantastic landscapes and nourish myself with the encounters made there. low. I therefore invite you through this exhibition, built over the last 5 years, to discover these mystical lands where the cold, the long and harsh winters, the sometimes difficult living conditions are not enough to mitigate the virtues and grandeur of the places. . Follow me, and come and explore breathtaking landscapes and drink in the polar colors, which force those who venture there to fall in love with the place forever...
