At first glance, photographer Rainer Torrado‘s “Eye Carry the Night” may look to you like a strange grid of lines and colors. They’re actually photos of neon signs.

Instead of photographing the design on the face of the signs, Torrado took his camera directly beneath each one, capturing what the displays look like from an angle that most people ignore.

“The glowing neon tubes contrast with the night sky,” Torrado writes. “Structural wires act as a testimony of the human intervention on a dark, ruthless nature.”
