This Franck Bohbot Photography Series is of Chinatown in NYC

Franck Bohbot photography is known to feature the busiest of places at their most desolate and empty states. The Brooklyn-based French photographer recently shot New York City's Chinatown in the same manner. The results are a rare sight, considering Chinatown is a part of "the city that never sleeps."

Simply titled ‘Chinatown,' the series features photographs of the normally people-packed location in a state of desertion. The photographs showcase streets, alleys, shuttered stores and high-rises that are surrounded with not a single soul. It looks as if the photos were shot at dusk, as the air is misty and a minimal amount of daylight is shining through it alongside softly glowing street lamps.

The series is a perfect depiction of the most ethnic area in Manhattan and goes against all of its cliches.
