Sohei Nishino

Anyone who bought The Times on Sunday will have been amazed to discover the breathtaking work of the 28 year old artist Sohei Nishino. Nishino spent last summer in London photographing the city from various vantage points. 10,000 photographs were edited down to 4,00 and reassembled in his Tokyo studio using scissors and glue (a man after my own heart). The above image is just a section of the Diorama map, its finished size measures a rather impressive 230cm x 128cm. Others cities depicted include Tokyo, New York, Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Kyoto. I am completely blown away by these images and can’t wait to see his upcoming show at the Michael Hoppen Gallery. Now he really does have the patience of a saint!
