The city lights of Tokyo at nightfall take on center stage in the photography of Shinichi Higashi.

The Japanese photographer captures the city's brilliant beauty with his keen eye for the contrast of neon light with nightfall. He makes these breathtaking images by taking a long exposure shot and editing it to create a mirror image that shows like a futuristic masterpiece.

Speeding cars make for intricate lines that are striking against the dark settings. The pictures depict modernist imagery that showcases the crowding and fast-paced nature of the contemporary Japanese capital. Shinichi Higashi's work is refreshing as it takes conventional cityscape photography to the next level by adding a symmetrical aspect which makes for a sci-fi Tokyo that is light years away.
