In terms of night photographywe can play it natural like the artist Genaro Bardy who captured the streets of Tokyo emptied of its inhabitants. Yet what we are going to show you today is off the beaten path. Here, this photographer uses other techniques to sublimate unknown places.
Jun Yamamoto, more known on Instagram as jungraphy, already accounts for more than 17,000 subscribers. But how is it different? His urban snapshots at night are absolutely vibratory, even magnetic. This forces respect, knowing that the artist is a self-taught artist. Based in the Japanese capital, it is also retoucher professional. And as you may have guessed, his passion is urban photography.
Capturing many cities Asian as and when traveling, it focuses more on Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore. His current project has no name yet, and we do not know if it's a series, but one thing is certain: each shot proves that the photographer has a "paw", a style recognizable.
Thanks to the technique of long pose, which consists of letting his camera take the picture for a long time, he is able to make shots where light lines seem to come alive on roads. This effect of Time-lapse accelerated makes his pictures even more beautiful and mysterious. With the reflections created by puddles of rainwater, combined with the halos of colored lights, the clichés take on a whole new look; giving the illusion of true portals to parallel universes, where everything is only mirror.
Quite simply hypnotic. It's almost like Blade Runner, with the atmosphere of "neon night and Japanese streets" that emerges from the photos. This creative breaks codes the night photo with a lot of class. As you guessed, we love it!
