About Photographer

Born in 1989 in Port-au-Prince, Haïti, Lo Kee is a french photographer living in Paris, France. Through his photographic approach, Lo Kee makes the city his main subject. His glance is attracted by the play of light and contrast. Thus, the silhouettes and shadows are only accessories. He therefore preferred the term Urban Photographer to Street Photographer. His attraction for urban theme, he owes it to a hypersensitivity to the passing time, to a certain kind of melancholy. Curious, demanding and refusing to submit to a single approach in photography, Lo Kee does not deprive himself of enriching his universe by exploring new processes and subjects. Thus, with the same sensitivity, it will deal with urban landscapes as well as wilders. The tormented and enigmatic landscapes attract him in particular. Engaged, his visual signature, confers sometimes a dramatic aspect to his scenes. In this way, the artist titillates the imagination and opens a door that only returns to the viewer to push. The dark world of Lo Kee is therefore an invitation; An invitation to a mythology governed by its own codes, which emphasizes feelings and emotions.
