All about french photographer Lo Kee

Bio

I'm a french photographer born in 1989 and based in Paris, France.

Self-taught, it is in 2015 that I've decided to devote himself fully to the practice of photography. Although having a
recent practice of photography, I've been noticed for my personal writing, my work thus giving rise to various exhibitions in France and abroad. Some of my photographs have been the subject of various publications and distinctions.
In 2018, I joined the board of the National Society of Fine Arts, before becoming the next year, president of the photography section, making of me the youngest member to take on this role.

Statement 

If there are photographers who take pictures to meet others, there are also those who do it to meet themselves. I am part of these latter.

Whether at the other end of the world or at the corner of my street, I track down the atmospheres that appeal to me. The black and white and the chiaroscuro which since childhood fascinate me, are today the tools that I use to create both poetic and graphic atmospheres.

In "Tenebrism", urban landscapes, natural landscapes, still lifes, and street photos intertwine to give birth to a mythology in black and white but mainly in black, which revolves around recurring themes such as passage, absence or loneliness.
