Shadowmen - when night falls in old Shanghai

November 05, 2015

When night falls over Shanghai the hustle and bustle on the streets disappears and deep down in old Shanghai the shadows fall over the lanes and  houses. Many times I have driven past at night and  wondered about what it´s like wondering around the area in Laoximen in the evening. A few weeks ago, during one of the last warm days,  me and my photographer friend Michelle finally go the chance and ventured out for a Shanghai night photosafari.


Where there is darkness you can always find light. And it is amazing how much light there still is in the city even at night. As a matter of fact it never get´s really dark in Shanghai.I loved exploring the alleys and lanes which during the day I´m so familiar with. It felt like I was diving into a different world. 

This is my little story of shadows, colours, every "night" life and the locals of Laoximen:
