The Tokyo End photo series depicts what the booming metropolis would look like if everyone decided to abandon it at once. Eerie and bewitching, the images are devoid of all signs of life, as though there was an impending doom on the horizon in the form of a catastrophic storm, another radiation disaster or the apocalypse.

Yet despite these terrifying thoughts, the Tokyo End series is breathtaking. By stripping it of people and cars, the viewer is able to appreciate the gleam of the streets, the bright lights and more. Shot at night by photographer Gabriel de la Chapelle, the Tokyo End photo series really captures Japan's densest city in a state that is near impossible to enjoy in real life.
