Liam Wong's debut monograph, a cyberpunk-inspired exploration of nocturnal Tokyo.

'I want to take real moments and transform them into something surreal, to make the viewer question the reality depicted in each photograph. This body of work encompasses my three years as a photographer and ultimately the completion of my debut photo series.'
Liam Wong
A testament to the deep art of colour composition, this publication - art directed by Wong himself and produced to the highest printing standard - brings together a complete and refined body of images that are evocative, timeless and completely transporting. Rounding out the book's special treatment is the first publication use of the 45/90 font, designed by Henrik Kubel, of London-based A2-TYPE. The book also features a section that reveals the creative and technical process of Wong's method, from identifying the right scene to composition, from capturing the essence of a moment to enhancing colour values and deepening an image's impact - insights are invaluable to admirers and photography enthusiasts alike.
