Amazing flash street photography

Chicago Lights: Flash Street Photography by Satoki Nagata snow multiple exposures light Chicago black and white

Chicago-based photographer Satoki Nagata has produced a series of abstract, black and white street portraits of people caught in the winter elements.

Nagata says that he lights his subjects from behind with a flash using a slow shutter speed and doesn’t rely on double exposures or glass reflections as it may appear.

The results are some pretty striking photographs of people who look nearly transparent yet appear to be almost perfectly surrounded by a crisp halo of light.

Here are more examples of Satoki’s amazing flash street photography:

 Nagata’s primary work centres around documentary photography which is also well worth a look.
