Gorgeous, otherworldly images from Japanese photographer Kito Fujio up on Hyperallergic.
All captured at night, the equipment appears as eerie structures, isolated and dramatically illuminated. Fujio lit each one as if in a studio, even setting up lights inside cavernous playhouses so they seem to beam with unseen life. No children are present, making for particularly melancholic scenes of sites designed for carefree recreation. In one image, a massive robot with shining eyes stretches its arms — one of which doubles as a slide — as if eagerly waiting for kids to pay it a visit.
