Light in the City Series started in 2017 when I visited Tokyo for the first time in a decade. Looking at those Illuminated city buildings at night made me feel dizzy. Architecture in Tokyo is so beautiful and I didn’t know how to look at them. People worked day after day to make a living for themselves and their loved ones. This city is made of concentrated power of people from all over the archipelago. I deeply felt that when I saw those high-rise buildings and people on the street. I was actually overwhelmed. In my eyes, things looked much sharper and colors are deeper even during the day. I never realized the climate of Tokyo is different to that of Hiroshima until I saw the sky at dawn. I also learnt that even sunrise and sunset time is not the same. It is just a slight difference but that was enough to affect my biological rhythm. In order to accommodate my rhythm to this new environment, I have started to stroll the city. In this series, architecture is my subject to capture light.
