About the artwork

Although he is from the land of the rising sun, Masashi Wakui does not appear to witness this daily event! The night-owl photographer sublimates the Japanese capital after dark, when the stores have rolled down their doors, billboards glow on the façades of buildings, and traditional lanterns hanging at the entrances to restaurants have replaced the sun's rays. With a great deal of talent and finesse, each of the images taken in one of Tokyo's many neighbourhoods tells us a tale about a part of the city. From Shibuya to Itabashi, Machida to Nihonbashi, the saturated colours lend a highly cinematographic effect to the photographer's work, who brings his wide-angle lens on his urban explorations. The spectator thus discovers the more intimate, humane, dark but also authentic sides to the city.
