Neon Tokyo by Liam Wong

Liam Wong captured the nightly beauty of a neon Tokyo.

Liam Wong is a graphic designer from Scotland who works in the video games industry for Ubisoft in Canada. With his passion for photography, he is traveling the world to discover beautiful places and exciting cities. During his recent trip to Japan, he has taken amazing photographs of a nocturnal Tokyo. On a rainy night, Liam Wong walked through the lively streets of the city. He was fascinated by Tokyo’s beauty. Inspired by video games and sci-fi action movies such as Gaspar Noé’s ‘Enter The Void’ or Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’, Liam Wong has taken countless photographs that give as the impression of a neon Tokyo.

Liam Wong just kept taking picture after picture of all the streets, people, back alleys, places, buildings and neon signs. Since he started to share these images on Instagram, the number of his followers increased rapidly. Here you can see a small selection of his ‘Neon Tokyo’ series.
