Cinematic images of some of China's neon-lit back alleys by Paris-based graphic designer and photographer Marilyn Mugot inspired by the films of David Cronenberg, Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick. She visited China in November and spent six weeks exploring Chongqing, Guilin and Hong Kong, setting out for a different neighborhood as the sun went down to spend several hours wandering and shooting. As part of her Night Project series, she tells Wired in an interview: “I prefer to work at night because it’s exciting. The lights and the elements take on mystical and secret dimensions which are not always real but a result of my imagination.”
