A photo book for lovers of dark, atmospheric and vibrant photography
Hi everyone! I'm Davide Aronnax, a self-taught photographer from southwest Germany. You know how your soul yearns for something as you step out of a bass-riddled club into the heavy air of a summer night? The moment when the heat slowly dances around your body when a mysterious girl glances over her shoulder looking right into your eyes? If you know how that feels, or if you're a fan of Wong Kar-Wai, Blade Runner, or Ghost In The Shell, this is the book for you.
Neon Vibrance is the final product of my 4-year journey capturing neon lights on the streets and people who defy the rules. This is a book for everyone who loves neon lights, the vibrating atmosphere of a dark and colorfully illuminated club, the playful change of shadow and light between threatening skyscrapers and the promises whispered by beautiful yet unknown women. All the photography and words are done by me, Davide Aronnax.
A bit more about my inspirations: The classics, including Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, In the Mood for Love, as well as Drive, Only God Forgives, The Art of Jamie Hewlett, Todd MacFarlane and Roger Deakins, the movies of David Fincher and Christopher Nolan.

Why would you support this project?
Without you, the fans of this type of photography, there will be no book and probably no further projects. This crowdfunding campaign is raising the money to print this wonderful book. The project is non-profit since I aim only to cover the costs of producing this wonderful project. All things accounted for I will make a loss on this project anyway but without your help and support this book will not be printed.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money goes directly to the printing company that will print this beautiful Hardcover photo book.
Who are the people behind the project?
There are of course a lot of people who helped me during the years but the overall vision and work is all done by me. But without the help of Ben Hammer, Matthias Zimmerman, Jak Masters, Renée Touschong, perlensau, ivy Berlin and this project would not have been possible.
