Photographer Keow Wee Loong uses only his smartphone to create these stunning images of light-wrapped humans. The long exposure allows this artist to paint an image of a person completely covered in rings of glowing light.

The idea of the project is to create a connection between busy urban lifestyles and self-satisfaction. While society ensures that people are continuously surrounded by moving artificial light from cars, trains and buildings there is also a desire to remain still and seemingly in control.

This artist presents city life by consuming humans in light-wrapped poses and capturing the subway trains with long exposure. This technique allows the audience to see the city in a still, yet chaotic way.
