THE BEAUTY OF NIGHT

夜 の 美

"Capturing real moments and transforming them into the surreal"

LIAM WONG

VISION


I create, capture and design meaningful aesthetics.

I love capturing real moments and transforming them into the surreal. 

In 2015, I purchased my first DSLR, ahead of my trip to Tokyo.

When I arrived in Japan, I captured various parts of Tokyo, rarely venturing far from tourist spots.

Then one night it rained.

And the city came to life and I got lost in the beauty of Tokyo at night. 

The images that follow represent my first venture into photography, with my series titled 'Tokyo Nights' (TO:KY:OO) - capturing real moments after midnight in the city of Tokyo. 
 

THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING ME ON MY JOURNEY

"Look carefully because this surreal illustration is actually a photograph"

By day, Liam Wong is an art director for a video game company. By night, he photographs the color and chaos of the largest city in the world.

"incredibly mesmerizing photos of Tokyo taken by an award-winning video game designer"

 
"Amazing photos from Canon photographer Liam Wong, as he explores a different side of the city everyone thinks they know."
“I love how moody and colorful these images are. Each has a graphic and cinematic quality that makes this collection very dreamy. Knowing that the creator of these images, Liam Wong, is a graphic designer for Ubisoft, a video game creator/publishing company, makes all sense in the world.”

Art Director Liam Wong spends his days directing the visual identity of video games at Ubisoft, while his nights are spent exploring the neon-splashed streets of his city of Tokyo, and sometimes London. Wong places these images, that seem to mimic the appearance of a video game themselves, on Instagram.
Heightened pinks, blues, yellows and greens jump forth from the murky depths of night life mystery creating a truly immersive photographic experience.
