Italian artist and photographer Olivo Barbier has been using the urban environment as his source of inspiration for a long time now. Known for his display of living environments, he travels around the world (from Europe to the Far East) to take iconic night portraits of megacities.
In his book "Ersatz Lights. Case Study #1 East West", his use for low depth of focus give an impressionistic feel whilst they are saturated in vivid colors against the darkness of evening. Moreover, since Barbieri is known for using miniature models to create semi-realistic images of landscapes, this series alternately portrays the cities model-like, despite being caught in real life.
Here's some preview of what you can expect from the book, taken from the late 80's to the 90's.
