I'm not the photographer I yearn to be. I'm no portrait photographer and a beautiful landscape is never done justice. I think I used to be a wedding photographer, but that was another state of mentality I have now retired into my box of unfinished things. I'm not a documentary photographer nor have I any sense of fashion. If there was anything I can be accused of documenting, it would be my own journey through life and love and being loved-but always a that little bit of alone. I'm like a stone...Cornell's stone. Waiting to go wherever I want to go. I love many things, love, pain, reality and my personal wonderland. I love colours... light is great but the truth is in its contrasty sibling. A consistent body of work, is what I hear is important, develop your own style...that doesn't work for me. I will bore myself. My photography is a impulsive as I am and I simply cannot sit still.
My name is Olivier SM and I'm not a photographer - I just want to make something real, something beautiful and I'm still far away from something really beautiful. (...and I hope I'm not better at writing, than I am at freezing a moment in time on a thin flexible strip of plastic coated with light-sensitive emulsion, because a poet I am not.)
