When asked about the works in his current show, photographer Jun Imajo said: “The cityscape was so colorful, it looked like an illustration create with color pencils.”

These photographs, which look a little like pastel drawings, were taken during a trip Imajo took to Portugal. They feature snapshots of architecture and beaches in bleached out colors, the deliberate overexposure adding a nostalgic tone to images that sometimes resembles old movies or Polaroids.

Imajo has a background in the magazine editorial and advertorial world and has been acclaimed for capturing the ethereality of his subjects in a way that goes beyond the ordinary photograph.
