Sohei Nishino’s Diorama Maps

Japanese photographer, Sohei Nishino, walks around cities taking pictures and pasting and arranging the results to create layered icons of a city from his memory. He has mapped Istanbul, Hong Kong, Paris, New York, Shanghai, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, Osaka and London.

Last year, Nishino spent a month walking the streets of London . He took over 10,000 photographs, which he edited down to 4,000. He cut them up and pasted them together  into a composite photographic map of the city of London measuring 7.5ft × 4ft.

Nishino's collages are on display at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London until April 2.
