Tokyo-based photographer Hosokawa Ryohei creatively captures the visually energetic nightlife of the Japanese capital with his camera. His electric nightscapes give a glimpse of the urban jungle and the people who live there through candid snapshots and long exposure images.

Rainy nights are lit by electric neon signs, and busy traffic intersections feature streams of tail lights. Each atmospheric image showcases Tokyo’s vibrant energy and constant movement. By playing with perspective, light, and reflections, Ryohei often uses rain-slicked street and puddles as part of his compositions, showing how buildings and lights are mirrored in their liquid surfaces.

So what does this self-taught photographer work with to capture such dynamic shots? Ryohei uses an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera, which is perfect for street photographers due to its sleek, compact design and interchangeable lenses.
