Tea and Cigarettes

After a four-hour-long walk on a very hot night in August 2019, lost in the labyrinth of Laoximen neighborhood, Shanghai, I had just decided that it was time to go back home. I had shot 4 rolls of film, I was exhausted and dehydrated and I just wanted to get back at home, switch on the AC and develop the film.

On my way out of the urban beehive, I turned a corner and stumbled upon a night scene that stopped me dead on the stop.

There it was, a small cigarette shop, shrouded in shadows, with the owner inside, drinking tea while reading.

It was too late to expect any client. He was there because he was just fine. Alone, in peace.
