Light Buildings

About this photograph

The Tokyo néons series made in 2008 is the fruit of late-night wandering in Shinjuku and Shibuya in Tokyo. The advertising signs, which are often vertical, infinitely line the avenues. This proliferation of advertising signs of course is reminiscent of Pop Art and Warhol. The accumulation of neon signs also questions consumer society and the Japanese way of life. Like a Prévert inventory, the night lights do the sales patter for the passers-by and indicate the plethora of offers inherent to the Shibuya and Shinjuku districts.

The Artist
Alexei Riboud

Since the series Soweto, Femmes sans terre in 2007, Alexei Riboud has continued to explore the world and has stopped in Asia this time, to be more precise, in Tokyo, Japan. This Franco-American, in his forties, photographs people and their environment, misery and joie de vivre, with the same enthusiasm.
