Mesmerizing Portraits Of Strangers In The Cold, On The Streets Of Chicago

Chicago-based photographer Satoki Nagata has photographed an emaculate series of portraits of strangers in Chicago.

Titled ‘Lights in Chicago’, it is an ongoing series of silhouettes of people walking in the cold streets of Chicago as the snow falls on them.

Nagata does this by using a backlight on his subjects, and a remotely controlled, off-camera flash to shoot the photographs.

The resultant effect is that each photograph is a unique and amazing portrayal of the dark, cold, winter streets.
