To give our readers a better taste of the spectacular content in the shop, we’re spotlighting works each week. This week, we bring you the captivating photo titled Lost in Chinatown by photographer D. Yee.

The masterful storyteller manages to build a narrative without revealing much. It’s the viewer’s natural curiosity that plays harmoniously with the photographer’s captivating images.

This print is currently available to purchase through My Modern Shop.
