Cities of Molten Gold

Skyscrapers of luminous gold and silver hues rise up from the bright city streets into the night sky. Once the sun sets on Vancouver, the façade of the city, bathed in an iridescent glow, quickly transforms into an atmospheric backdrop for the city’s night owls. In his large-format pieces, Amyn Nasser captures this remarkable mood and allows each glittering window to tell its story. The voyeur inside us is brought out, and we search for the hidden details behind the glass like enthusiastic detectives.

Amyn Nasser’s Voyeur Nocturne body of work is the result of a ten-month project exploring Vancouver’s high-rise jungle from unknown perspectives. His concept of exploring the essence of Vancouver at night through colour, contour, and light has produced a series of exceptional architectural photographs. Warm, metallic colours that range from glistening gold to silvery platinum to shimmering bronze are characteristic of Nasser’s work. Though shot from afar, the city’s silhouette is bathed in a harmonic light and emits a welcoming warmth, inviting us to linger the way a lit window does a silent observer.

Amyn Nasser’s work is more than a mere tribute to the beauty of his adopted hometown. They can also be interpreted as a critical reflection of a society in which the boundaries between private and public have become fluid. Having already published spreads in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar as a fashion photographer, Nasser has won countless prizes for his architectural photography and plans to continue developing this body of work.
