HIKARI

If there is one incredibly striking element to Japan, no matter which of it's bright cities you find yourself in, it's the lights. From the neon green tubing in Osaka's Dotonbori, to the blinding white screens of Shibuya Crossing, to the musical water fountain shows complete with violet and fuchsia illuminations outside of Kyoto Railway Station, you can't help but allow yourself to be drenched in the over-saturation, over-stimulation of Japan's obsession with lights.

Hikari is my photo series of iPhone-shot imagery from throughout my trip across Japan in November to December of 2016. I hope you enjoy these squared close-crops of the most beautiful, sometimes intricate, oft-impacting lights of this country like no other.
