Our Photo of the Day series this week shares street photography from Jan Wich-Herrlein.
Style meets street art, with one of my favourite motifs in town: a local neighborhood with someone striding by a characteristic facade (Location: Xinle Lu, Shanghai)
Jan is a German photographer based in Shanghai. His day job is a marketing manager in the sporting goods industry. Having been in China for less than a year, he’s deeply fascinated by everyday life on the streets of the city. He feels that it is “an ordinary life at first sight, yet so familiar when you take a second look”. He shoots urban, architecture, people, and travel, all on his mobile phone and a drone. Be sure to check out more photos of China through his eyes here.
