lucas zimmermann's surreal traffic lights illuminate misty german streets

 

photographer lucas zimmermann has spent more than two years capturing ordinary traffic lights with a surreal and spectral twist. by night, zimmermann takes to the sleepy streets of weimar, germany and captures the vibrant luminesce subtly emitted by the signals. intense rays of red, yellow, and green radiate through a shadowy mist, exposing the ordinary traffic light in a completely new light.

the series started more than two years ago and has recently been expanded to include an alternative perspective on the scene. ‘I have been waiting for two long years to finally go out again and progress on my traffic lights series,’ zimmermann says. rainbow hues emanate from within the traffic lights, forming a sharp juxtaposition between the heavy metal infrastructure and the delicate colors they diffuse.
