Photographer captures Japanese fireworks in all its glory

One can’t ever get enough of fireworks but thanks to Photographer Keisuke, you can revisit the most iconic Japanese fireworks over and over again. July and August are the firework months in Japan when about 200 firework festivals, named “Hanabi Taikai”, take place throughout the country in the honour of a tradition that dates back to the 18th century. The festivals become a platform for the pyrotechnicians to compete in and hence as a result, great fireworks come out on display that have detailed designs, colours and scale. 25-year-old Keisuke has certainly captured these details in every single of his frame and they truly make you feel as if you are watching the fireworks live and not on a static screen.
