Olivier Kugler is a documentary illustrator who works direct from life. He integrates text- usually the speech of the people he has drawn- into the image, and leaves areas unfinished, sometimes layering drawings.  With documentary illustration, what is noticeable is that the ‘facts’ or the ‘story’ are foregrounded rather than the opinions or feelings of the artist.
