The photographs of the series Kopiec Bonawentura takes its origin from a quote by french author Alfred Jarry from its play Ubu Roi (1896): «Set in Poland, that is to say nowhere.» The photographer Lucas Olivet builds a multiple and transnational answer.


Magazine for Classic & Contemporary Nude Photography – Volume VII

In a world full of confusion and debates about human identity, one truth always remains: Human beings are bound to their bodies and only their spirit can transcend these boundaries. In this sense, THE OPÉRA Volume VII is once again a search for the constraints on human corporeality and how they can be overcome by means of fantasy and knowledge. The numerous photographs and portraits strive to provide viewers’ powers of imagination with inspiring impulses, in which the narrative of being human is given unconventional perspectives. Since, at the root of art, this truth fundamentally also retains its validity: People are interested in people.
