Photographer Immortalizes Vibrant Neon Streets of Hong Kong and Tokyo

Moroccan photographer and 3D artist Zaki Abdelmounim merges his skill sets to produce incredible night photography of well-loved Asian cities. His photographs of Hong Kong and Tokyo show the vibrant, neon-soaked streets bustling with activity throughout all hours of the night.

A love of surreal science fiction and noir pushed Abdelmounim to create each series and use his design skills to pull out the saturated details of the neon lights of the respective cities. “The projects came from a fascination with fictional cyberpunk and neon-noir worlds, and a feeling of urgency to live and conjure images of these vibes from our real world,” Abdelmounim tells My Modern Met. “It’s the juxtaposition of a different era and the present we live in, of the real and fiction, what makes it a worthwhile experience.”

Fighting the chaos around him to hone in on specific experiences, Abdelmounim is able to tell a cohesive story with his work. From bustling intersections to friends sharing a laugh, he captures the human experience in addition to the massive architecture. And as such, his work has an intimate feel that battles against the sensory overload of the environment.

Shanghai, Seoul, Chicago, and New York are all on the photographer’s wishlist for the ongoing project. Keep an eye out for where he’ll land next and if you are interested in prints, they are available via Curioos.

Inspired by cyberpunk and neon-noir, photographer Zaki Abdelmounim captures the neon streets of Hong Kong and Tokyo.
