After Hours - February 2020

Once the clock ticks off those last hours of the day, closing the door behind you opens new portals. Take a seat somewhere and watch a different world unfurl, one where faces are distorted by shadows, conversations take on conspiratorial overtones, and everything unthinkable mere moments before now logically ensues. The stray souls that find themselves together in this configuration have something to share, a dynamic that reveals itself gradually and infuses different layers of meaning to each phase of the night in an endless string of events, all under the sole scrutiny of fuzzy streetlights. For, as the song goes, if you close the door, the night could last for ever.
