May 2nd 2015, while on a Mahler Chamber Orchestra tour in Asia, my friend and viola player Joel Hunter came to me in need of some “edgy photos” for a CD cover. That’s pretty unusual for a classical musician, and I was immediately excited at the prospect of taking advantage of Hong Kong’s inspiring scenery. It did not take long to spot the perfect back alley, with lots of “edgy” atmosphere, complete with potent smells, dark corners, local workers, and super size rodents. Joel’s viola case in that setting was easy to mistake for an Heckler & Koch carrying devise, the mood was set… The story is yours to imagine.

My name is Geoffroy Schied, I am a professional musician, founding member of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Since 1998 I spend a big part of my life on the road, performing all over the world. On a concert night in London in 2013, I met a professional photographer who was shooting with two rather compact cameras from the Fujifilm X series. Seeing the beautiful and emotional moments he captured on that evening inspired me to take photos again. Recently I decided to share some of my images via this blog, a life made of music and photography. View all posts by 35mmofmusic
