‘Blade Runner-Esque’ Photos of Tokyo as a Neon Metropolis


Liam Wong, a graphic design art director specializing in videogames, created an electrifying series of photos on a trip to Tokyo that look they could be screenshots of Ridley Scott’s neo-noir sci-fi classic Blade Runner . Wong, who we discovered on Lost at E Minor, captures the dark alleys, rainy streets, and bustling avenues of the neon metropolis with its billboards illuminating the skyline. His technique emphasizes the Japanese city’s futuristic elements, while also lending a fever-dream quality to the landscape.
