A computer software engineer by day, Takashi Kitajima hits the streets of Tokyo after work hours, armed with his camera and a vision of the city as a dreamy wonderland. Through his lens, the bustling metropolis melts away into colorful layers of creamy bokeh that are stunning to behold.
From vantage points high and low, Kitajima transforms glittering night scenes into abstract images that depict the cityscape in a new light. Distinct objects like the Tokyo Tower, high-rises, and old temples serve as the clear focal points around which multihued bokeh swirl. The photographer’s snapshots are a spectacularly beautiful take on Tokyo as a dazzling world of color and radiance.
