Glow: Saturated Cityscapes by Xavier Portela

Published Jul 20, 2018

Brussels-based photographer Xavier Portela manipulates the colors in his photographs to create fantastic images that capture the emotions and “electric feeling” he experienced while visiting some of the world’s most iconic cities, including Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok and New York.

Here’s an excerpt from his interview with Colossal:

“When you are taking photographs on the streets you have way more than just a frame, you have variables like temperature, noise, people, smell. You have tons of details that make our senses and brain record a specific ‘scene’ of that moment. When you got home and you look at your photographs on screen, you only have a frame in two dimensions. It’s frustrating how much information you just lost… I wanted my shots to look like as if they came straight out of a manga. Vibrant and electric.”
