These candid captures were shot by photographer Satoki Nagata. The images depict the hustle and bustle of night-life in Chicago amid raging winter conditions. The huge, bulbous splashes of rain are made even more dramatic with the use of a slow shutter speed and artificial lighting.

These unusual techniques result in some of the figures in the portraits appearing transparent as they rush about the city. The series captures the elegance and brutality of nature in one and shows just how much of a hindrance weather can be to daily life. If you’re anything like me, scenes like this will make you long for the heady days of summer when battling the elements and wearing five layers of clothing can be forgotten forever!
