Originally from Paris, Raphael Olivier moved to Asia in 2007, first to Vietnam,
followed by Shanghai and Singapore. Currently based in Bangkok, Olivier flew to Manilla to photograph our cover star, Robbie Antonio.
What do you love most about Bangkok? It’s easy, relaxed, comfortable and modern with plenty of local culture. It’s also well connected with the rest of Asia. Most exciting photography commission? It’s really the variety of experiences that make this job so special, from driving through snowy Kazakhstan to snorkelling in the Maldives or flying in an open-door helicopter over Brazil. Where’s your happy place? Next to the cheese platter.
