Two cultures as rich as they are opposed coexist in Lyodoh Kaneko’s person and photography.
Accomplished French-Japanese musician and permanent violin soloist of the prestigious Orchestre National de France Lyodoh blossomed since childhood as a gifted musician.
Through his musical path he developed his sensitivity as much as his perfectionism, though exploiting mostly his occidentals origins in this field.
It is only later, after photography invades his life that he can truly embrace his Nippon roots and influences. This eclectic mix of passions and experiences irradiates his photography with realistic aestheticism but where his education had marked his musical interpretation it is his subconscious taking over and speaking through his photography. Lyodoh’s personal works draw in the spectator as much as he forces himself into watching his own reflection captured in another individual or social context, which throws him back invariably to his own existence.
