The impressive Olivier Zahm portfolio contains photographs that clearly establish him as one of the originators of the candid supercharged sexual photographs that have quickly become the raison d'être of aspiring underground photographers around the world.

The Olivier Zahm portfolio contains flicks of the celebrity shutterbug and his famous friends. Images include shots of supermodels Lindsey Wixon, Sarah Schofield, and even fellow celebrity counterculture photographer Terry Richardson.

The Olivier Zahm portfolio features shots that are sordid and sexual. Models wear little to nothing and engage in a series of sensual and carefree poses that exude the wanton lust for hedonism typical of the underground avant-garde aesthetic.

Zahm, the founder of influential French fashion and culture magazine, Purple, has a portfolio that displays the brash and fearless confidence of a true maverick. A close examination of his photographs makes it clear why he is considered one of the architects of modern unconventional candid photography.
