Lost in the Beauty Of Tokyo.

My name is Liam Wong, and I work in the video games industry as Graphic Design Director at Ubisoft, where I direct the ‘look and feel’ / visual identity for games. Originally from Scotland, two and a half years into my career I moved to Canada.
Since then I have been lucky enough to travel the world through work and in the last year I started to get into photography as a way to capture these moments, creating my Instagram account as a photo diary.

I first visited Tokyo during the press tour for the game Far Cry 4 and I immediately fell in love with the city. Ahead of my second trip, I purchased my first DSLR and took these pictures. Scrolling through my Instagram feed, you will notice a very distinctive change of direction.
I captured various parts of Tokyo, rarely venturing far from tourist spots.

Then one night it rained and the city came to life. I got lost in the beauty of Tokyo at night. I was fascinated by how the city lit up and I just kept taking picture after picture.
It was like being inside Gaspar Noé’s film, ‘Enter The Void’, or living in the cyberpunk world that Syd Mead had created in Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’.
After posting the pictures online, my following on Instagram increased overnight and since then I have been in different cities taking photos at night.
