Nightshift, by Florian Mueller

An image from Florian Mueller’s Nightshift series

I love this photo series documenting Shanghai’s late-night food stalls from Florian Mueller. Although I can imagine these streets are busy and full of noise — horns, bikes, passing trucks, talking — there’s a wonderful sense of peace to these images. Each stall is framed by darkness, the owner quietly attending in the shadows; each feels almost like a side chapel in a shadowy (skyscraper-filled) cathedral.
