Description

Featuring evocative and stunning color photographs of contemporary Tokyo, this book brings together the images of an exciting new photographic talent, Liam Wong. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, Wong studied computer arts in college and, by the time he was twenty-five, was living in Canada and working as a director at one of the world's leading video game companies. His job took him to Tokyo for the first time, where he discovered the ethereality of floating worlds and the lurid allure of Tokyo's nocturnal scenes. "I got lost in the beauty of Tokyo at night," he explains.

A testament to the deep art of color composition, this publication brings together a refined body of images that are evocative, timeless, and completely transporting. This volume also features Wong's creative and technical processes, including identifying the right scene, capturing the essence of a moment, and methods to enhance color values--insights that are invaluable to admirers and photography students alike.

Reviews

This monograph raised more money through crowdfunding than any other book in the U.K. to date.

Liam's 'photos' are not just photos. You can feel what cannot be normally seen.


Unique... disrupts the traditional photobook paradigm... an excellent addition to the photographic essays surveying Japan's capital. Wong has capitalized on his talents and experience in the gaming world to produce a hybrid vision of sorts, producing a book that in equal measure engages and compels the viewer in ways that speak to the power of photography.
