City art has long been a theme for photographers. In ‘Untitled #6‘, Alicja Dobrucka focuses her camera on Tokyo at night, capturing the city as it sleeps. The work is from ‘Nico‘, a series that she made while living in Tokyo while doing a residency in 2016. The series consists of a number of portraits of buildings taken at night. These are portrait images that celebrate them, making them transform into something magical and full of possibility. These stand alongside traditional portrait images of characters that the artist met in her favourite bar, Nico.
