Foggy Oregon Coast Pacific Ocean
Driving down the West Coast through Oregon along the coastal route I came upon this spectacular view of the Ocean with the blue of the Ocean blending into the sky in the distance. Rocks jutting out. A lazy afternoon. A spectacular view!

LUMAS LIMITED EDITIONS | NASSER+ FASHION NUDE ARCHITECTURE FINEART
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 faÁade of the city, bathed in an iridescent glow, quickly transforms into an atmospheric backdrop for the cityís 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 Nasserís Voyeur Nocturne body of work is the result of a ten-month project exploring Vancouverís 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 Nasserís work. Though shot from afar, the cityís 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 Nasserís 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 Harperís Bazaar as a fashion photographer, Nasser has won countless prizes for his architectural photography and plans to continue developing this body of work.

Amyn Nasserís Voyeur Nocturne is a photographic celebration of Vancouver better known as the ďcity of glass.ĒĚ With its high population density relative to most other North American cities, urban planning in Vancouver is characterized by high-rise residential and mixed-use development in the city centre as an alternative to sprawl. Glass condominium towers dominate the skyline and have been credited in contributing to the city's high rankings in livability. Amyn Nasser has effectively captured this feeling unique to and defining of Vancouver where each layer symbolizes the excitement and vibrancy of inner city life. If windows are the eyes to the soul, can the same be said for the soul of a city?
The Voyeur Nocturne series resulted from a 10 month long project taking the photographer to different viewpoints across the city; many of the most spectacular shots are a product of careful planning and consideration. Reflections present both opportunity and challenge; windows aglow invite the viewer in. As evening comes and the lights go on, a routine scene quickly becomes something with character and mood.
Amyn Nasserís accredations and accolades extend internationally. From Paris to New York to Dubai, Nasser has been an established international fashion and celebrity photographer for over 25 years with editorials in Vogue, Vogue Hommes, Harperís Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Elle. The Voyeur Nocturne series was the only photography chosen to officially hang at the Olympic Village as chosen by Art Consultant, Miriam Aroeste. It was also acredited with an Honorable Mention at the LUCIE Pilsner Urquell International Photography Awards. In addition, Amyn was accredited by the Photography Master Cup - International Color Awards for both his nude and portrait work.
