Shinjuku by Night Photos
Photo Art by Stefan Stenudd
Tokyo night photos, 2000.
This little gallery contains photos taken by night. Any city I have come across, has got at least two souls - one living only by day, in full light, and the other nocturnal. Tokyo too, no doubt, and certainly very clearly its Shinjuku district, being particularly lively at night.
These pictures, though, deal not with the citizens of Shinjuku, but the buildings again - as a sort of backside to the gallery with photos of buildings by day.
The buildings, too, seem to give quite different impressions at night, although just as majestic. When they reach for the pitch black sky, they do it with as much delight as when penetrating the clear blue daytime sky - but with another sentiment, other implications.
The skyscraper celebration of the right angle.
Shinjuku by night
Nocturnal spirit of those same buildings and their habitat.
The constant flow of people, searching for their delights.
People enjoying themselves. Events taking place on the streets and in the park.
