SynthCity: Photos of Tokyo by Zaki Abdelmounim

Published Oct 21, 2019

‘SynthCity’ is a striking series of captures by Moroccan motion designer and art director Zaki Abdelmounim.

“Tokyo’s overwhelming visual presence is an all-out assault on your senses, offering a strong immersive cyberpunk experience.”

“A lot to process and too much to take in from the flashing neon lights, the sounds of the busy streets and train stations, and the commercial signs of every building It’s downright surreal and truly catches the spirit of what a cyberpunk city would look like.

Easily getting lost offers an unmatched thrill and sense of discovery, but a certain follower emerges at night will keep your company during your stroll under the rain. It’s the ‘Talking Lights’ in the labyrinth of alleys. The dimly-lit neon signs of hiragana and katakana trying to communicate with the fast paced walkers brings a nostalgic air, and it’s a beautiful sight to behold.

These photos were taken during September of last year, from there I spent the following 8 months experimenting in my spare time, which allowed me to play with various styles of color grading techniques, that shifted from cyberpunk/vaporwave like colors, to dark and cinematic tones, in order to communicate different moods of these scenes.”
