Japanese storm water drainage photos show incredible sense of scale

Japanese storm drainage system These photos are quite amazing but the most striking are the ones that reveal the scale of what is being shown. Seeing a 10-story flight of stairs or people in the context of these tunnels transforms them, revealing how massive they truly are. It’s impossible to know how large these objects are without a frame of reference. But by putting something familiar into these scenes, the photographer has provided us with a sense of scale that is extremely powerful.

  • These are amazing! This is urban exploration on a grandiose level. And, of course, a great example of how to give a sense of scale.
