Thomas Birke went to Tokyo in 2008 to photograph the urbanscape. He always knew in advance where to shot in the evening or at night,from his intensive scouting.
Thomas Birke, Tokyo, 2008
The pictures were shot mainly in twilight. The magic hour, where the houses are shining as bright as the residual daylight in the sky and the colourful neon signs melt with the green-blue of the beginning night. Presumably he worked from observation decks with open air, so that he didn't need to shoot through glass.
