Professional retoucher, illustrator and digital artist Alexis Goodwin’s latest series Shanghai Dreams brings his impressions of the city to a surreal level. Somewhere between fantasy and reality, he expertly manipulates his photographs into fascinating tableaus that feature Shanghainese against empty gradient backgrounds, putting emphasis on the daily activities that shape the culture and atmosphere of the city. Shot in markets, streets, sidewalk eateries and squares, each scenario is bathed in calming hues of blues and pinks. More of the series on his website, Behance and Instagram.
