Raphael Olivier

Architectural Digest (UAE) - - Contributors -

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.
