Asahi photographic exhibition 'Tokyo By Night' opens in Auckland
Asahi is celebrating the opening of an exhibition in Auckland today of photographs commissioned by renowned photographer Tom Blachford.
The exhibition, 'Tokyo By Night' was shot over six days, showing the nocturnal side of one of the world's most futuristic cities. “Tom Blachford seeks to unlock the transient beauty of Tokyo, a city constantly moving and evolving. His imagery evokes a sense of wonder and mystique – the buildings, the lights and the darkness merge to create a unique neon beauty. By capturing his journey we can begin to unlock the secrets of Tokyo By Night, a world only Asahi Super Dry can bring to you,” says Jade Clark, Marketing Manager, Asahi New Zealand.
Melbourne-based Blachford's work has featured in the likes of Wallpaper, Wired and Vogue, and is known for brooding images that show a different side to well-known places. “Tokyo has an amazing sci-fi aesthetic and by photographing late after dark I wanted to capture a side of it that is rarely seen. I wanted to capture the feeling that struck me when I first visited the city, that you have been somehow transported to another dimension. I wanted people to ask not where they were taken, but when.”
The two-week exhibition ‘Tokyo By Night’ is open to the public at Pineapple Bar, 207 Parnell Rd, Parnell, Auckland for two weeks from 5 October, Wednesday – Saturday, 4pm until late.
