Night Lights

Sato Shintaro

These shots were taken in the streets of Tokyo and Osaka at night from 1997 to 1999, and in them I have avoided the more aesthetically pleasing locations such as seaside areas and the well-known "subcenters" in favor of the everyday disorder of the streets. Take a brightly-lit busy street bustling with people and remove the people: the purpose of the lighting is lost and only the glow remains - providing a glimpse of the streets we know well from a less familiar perspective.

夜光

佐藤信太郎

1997年から1999年にかけて東京・大阪の街を撮影した。臨海副都心の様な美的な場所を避け、ごく日常的で猥雑な町並みを選んで撮影した。多くの人が行き交う明るい賑やかな夜の繁華街は、人を消してしまうと、光る目的を失いただ輝いている。身近な街角の、見慣れない空間が浮かび上がった。
