“Nightshift”: An Illuminated Glimpse Into Shanghai’s Late Night Shops And Stalls
Cities are defined by their people, architecture and culture, and the series Nightshift by photographer Florian W. Mueller encapsulates all three. Steering clear of the glitz and glamour of Shanghai, Mueller takes us through the quiet side streets of the city, capturing vendors manning their stores and kiosks that are open late into the night. Under the neon lights, he shows the mind-boggling variety or merchandise being sold in these shops, ranging from fruit, toys, clothes or even curtains. It’s an interesting and authentic portrait of Shanghai, and how life goes on in this dynamic city after dark.
