The biggest cities in the world without lights

At night we can not see the sky up above. To show this, French photographer Thierry Cohen, has taken a series of photographs called “Blackout City”, where the largest cities, such as New York, Paris, Tokyo, are sleeping peacefully and are lit only with stars.

In order to take these photographs, he visited nine megalopolises and took pictures of the landscapes’ cities and then went to a deserted place in the same latitude, but shooting photos with a clear sky. So it happened that the sky over Shanghai – is Western Sahara, and Paris was illuminated with stars of Montana.
