Tranquil Tokyo Tributes
Artist Alex Lee Captures His Hometown in Slo-Mo

By: Susan Keefe (Rockstar) Sep 21, 11

Brooklyn-based artist Alex Lee pays tribute to his hometown Tokyo in this carefully distressed, slow-motion flick showcasing the densely populated city. This 3-minute video displays the finer details of Japan’s largest city. Each frame is captured with affection and the post-production effects are tastefully applied, with restrained use of solar flares and image etching. 

Alex Lee unpretentiously calls himself, “Just a kid in the city with a camera,” but this piece elevates him well beyond that. The video is methodically planned out. The cuts are well timed, yet unexpected and the music choice (Flying Lotus ft. Tom Yorke - And the World Laughs With You) is spot on. His use of slow motion suggests he is savoring these familiar and comforting cityscapes; capturing each detail with loving care. Alex Lee’s vision of Tokyo inspires nostalgia in his viewers, even if they’ve never seen the incredible city for themselves.
