Photographs Show A Blurry, Bokeh View Of Tokyo by Takashi Kitajima
Photographer Takashi Kitajima has given us a beautifully unfocused night-time view of Tokyo in his photo series, ‘Extra Bokeh’.
He renders the beauty of Tokyo as a sea of colorful spots by capturing the city’s street lamps and lights with macro and telephoto lens.
To create his dreamy photos, Kitajima used a custom-made tilt-shift mount adapter. He also used rubber gloves as it is “very flexible and wonderful”, allowing him to stay steady as he works with long exposures.

A Towering Figure Enclosed Within a Glass Greenhouse by Susanne Ussing
Susanne Ussing, ‘I Drivhuset’ (‘In the Greenhouse’), 1980. Ussing was a Danish artist and architect, with a special interest ceramics. This mixed-media piece brings together the world of sculpture and architecture by placing the former inside the latter. Classical parallels are easily conjured here. Like a latter-day (and feminine) Zeus at Olympia, this ginormous female figure is too large for the confines of the glasshouse, which looks like it might shatter were she to move too freely; like a Crouching Aphrodite of immodest proportions, she looks vulnerable and coquettish all at once. At the same time, her skin of newspapers and skeleton of metal and wood thoroughly modern - not quite distracting from the gracefulness of her pose, but instead under-girding her with firm foundations.
Susanne Ussing (1940-1998, Danish) - I Drivhuset installed at Ordrupgaardsamlingen (In the Glasshouse), Denmark, 1980. It is composed of granite and porous materials.
