Yuu Murata (@yuumurata) has that special quality that seems to make him a member of the after-party people, the VIPs of nightlife… or at least that’s what his photos give off. His shots are unbelievably cool, filled with pulsing energy, seductive allure, and the atmosphere of being where everything is happening.

Cabaret dancers, collectable cars, dark strangers lighting their cigarettes underneath glass chandeliers, these scenes seem to come to us from those special invitation only nights where the young, wealthy, and artistic mix it up, dressed for the unpredictable.

Yuu’s composition is impeccable, and his eye for idiosyncrasies is unquestionable. Check out some of his best shots below.
