A Neon Fairytale Of Late-Night Walks Through The Streets Of NYC

When photographer Daniel Soares moved to New York, his sleep habits took a critical hit.With shimmering fairytales outside his door, there was no way this film-maker could permit himself to submit early.

Neon Nights is some nightscapes shot in the perspective of an outsider. As a man who was raised in Germany, Soares was completely new to everyday existence in New York, meaning every visible structure is captured through eyes that are fresh.

The collection is a scrapbook of speculations and night-time rambles about the lives of a stranger. It is a commentary on loneliness and town life.

Perhaps more precisely, it is a collection of tallies, each picture a mark representing another nights sleep that is lost.

Those smoky neon scenes are just as impressive as they're addictive.
