The Tokyo Architecture by Stephane Laniray photo series uses optical illusions to enhance stunning photography.

The architectural photographs, taken by Laniray during his trip to Tokyo, feature shots of public and private urban dwellings as well as offices and factories in industrial areas. The simple architecture of the city first attracted the photographer whose images were distorted, multiplied and reflected to create these bold depictions of Tokyo. The visually graphic series is somewhat of a departure for the well-known fashion photographer whose other work features runway pictorials and interior décor magazine shoots. When looking at the photographs, one does not notice their subject at first glance, but instead needs to look closely to be greeted with Tokyo’s wonderful architectural details.

The Tokyo Architecture by Stephane Laniray series is reminiscent of images seen through a kaleidoscope, and is a reflection of the efficient chaos associated with Tokyo.
