Olivier Dassault

OLIVIER DASSAULT

 

Born in 1951 in France, Olivier Dassault is of venerable French lineage: his grandfather was a pioneering aircraft manufacturer and created one of the largest companies in France: the Dassault Group.

 

Olivier Dassault is the Chairman of the Dassault Group, which ranges from aviation to international press, he is a renowned photographer and an accomplished pilot. His attraction for aircrafts have led him to spend half of his life in the air and to see the world from a different perspective.

 

His true passion lies in photography where he uses a photographic technique called multiple exposure in the shooting phase, exclusively working with film photography.  The line is important; the geometrical sense of his compositions expresses his will to get closer to the essence of his surroundings.  In his work, the world unites in a single image and creates a whole turned toward the diverse ways to live a landscape or a culture.
