In between the light — Chinatown NYC
Project info

In this series of photographs, I tried to capture the daily atmospheres of the Chinatown community in New York City. The diverse cultural backgrounds in the neighborhood layered with the Chinese characters on store signs along with the chaotic crowds on the narrow streets to create a series of interesting collages.

My intention of creating these photographs is not only to reveal the insights of the cultural nature of the community. Meanwhile, I wanted to create a visual narrative supported by arranging elements in the frames, exaggerating the contrast of the shadows to emulate a theatrical moment to express the idea of the coexists between the community and the isolation of the immigrants.
