Sergey Melnitchenko’s exhibition From Dusk till Dawn will be on display at Hong Kong’s f22 foto space from 6 June to 31 July 2019. Excerpts from the series Behind the Scenes (which earned Melnitchenko the Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award in 2017) are combined with 77 monochrome works, which the Ukrainian artist captured in the streets of China whilst working as a nightclub dancer in 2015.
The black and white series presents an intimate view of Chinese society from the vantage point of an outsider. Rather than focusing on the glamorous or materialistic elements of a rapidly growing economic power, the photographer was drawn to fleeting scenes of ordinary life – from a homeless man sleeping on a park bench to the detached faces of passengers inside a crowded bus.
