Photographer Gets Lost In The Beauty Of Tokyo’s Neon Streets At Night

1

Liam Wong injects a unique cyberpunk flavour into his images, casting a light upon the dark corners and back alleys that twist throughout Tokyo. His photographs manage to precisely capture the dynamism of the bustling city lit by bright neon signs and artificial lights, making one question the reality depicted in each photograph. With a distinct futuristic feel, most of Wong’s portfolio gives the sense that you were dropped into the middle of a stylish video game set in Japan’s animated capital.

“I first visited Tokyo during the press tour for the game Far Cry 4 and I immediately fell in love with the city. Ahead of my second trip, I purchased my first DSLR and took these pictures. Scrolling through my Instagram feed, you will notice a very distinctive change of direction. I captured various parts of Tokyo, rarely venturing far from tourist spots.”, Liam Wong told Bored Panda.

“Then one night it rained and the city came to life. I got lost in the beauty of Tokyo at night. I was fascinated by how the city lit up and I just kept taking picture after picture. It was like being inside Gaspar Noé’s film, ‘Enter The Void’, or living in the cyberpunk world that Syd Mead had created in Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’.”, he added.

“After posting the pictures online, my following on Instagram increased overnight and since then I have been in different cities taking photos at night. I wish I could say I have extensive techniques or that there is a deeper meaning or that I waited hours for the perfect shot, but I just walked around at night taking pictures of the city. Capturing what was in front of me and sharing it with my followers.”

“If you ever have the opportunity to visit Japan, you absolutely must go, it is beautiful.”
