New York City’s Chinatown by Franck Bohbot

See on Scoop.itBeautifully Dressed Up

Brooklyn-based French photographer Franck Bohbot, who previously took these opulent photographs of California movie theaters and shot rare images of the magnificent rooms in a deserted Louvre museum, has a new series that captures the dreamy beauty of New York City’s Chinatown.

Simply titled ‘Chinatown’, his photographs of its deserted streets and alleys, shuttered stores and towering high-rise buildings have a gauzy, misty feel that will make you see one of Manhattan’s most distinctive ethnic enclaves in a different light.

Taken at night, they avoid the clichéd daytime shots of crowded pavements and bustling activity that comes to mind when you think of the place.

Illuminated by the soft glow of street lamps and neon signs, they possess a peaceful calm, a rare moment of tranquillity in the city that never sleeps.
