Photographer Nana Chen first exhibited her series entitled Nocturne, a portrait of Bangkok’s Chinatown, back in June of this year. Now her show returns to Bangkok, but just for four days. Chen explores Chinatown by night, over the course of two months, and her photos are haunted by isolation, loneliness, decay, and death—a temple morphs into the face of a lion, an artificial streak of light points to an eroded building, and a display case containing dried leaves and stuffed tarantulas suggests an alchemist lives nearby. Her images at once dissect the human condition and life’s fading elegance.
