Cinematic images of some of China’s neon-lit back alleys by Paris-based graphic designer and photographer Marilyn Mugot inspired by the films of David Cronenberg, Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick.
She visited China in November and spent six weeks exploring Chongqing, Guilin and Hong Kong, setting out for a different neighborhood as the sun went down to spend several hours wandering and shooting.
As part of her Night Project series, she tells Wired in an interview: “I prefer to work at night because it’s exciting. The lights and the elements take on mystical and secret dimensions which are not always real but a result of my imagination.”

Although giant pandas spend most of the day eating and sleeping, they love to climb and play.
Here a year-old cub explores the treetops in an enclosure at the Wolong center of the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda, where captive-bred pandas are trained to live in the wild.
If the animal passes tests to gauge its survival skills and instincts, it will be released into the mountains.
If you’re scared of heights then you might want to look away now, because this walkway in China is your worst nightmare come true.
The fact that it’s attached 4,600ft (1,403 metres) up the side of a mountain is scary enough, but the fact that it’s also made of glass is nothing short of terrifying.
Situated on the side of Tianmen mountain in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Hunan Province, the walkway is 328ft (100 metres) long and 5.2ft (1.6 metres) wide.
It’s known as the Coiling Dragon Cliff skywalk, and as you can see, it certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, but anybody who finds the courage to brave the walkway will be rewarded with an utterly breathtaking view that few will ever experience.
The park is actually home to three glass walkways including a 1,410ft (430 metre) glass bridge suspended 590ft (180 metres) above the ground, so if you’re looking for adventure, or just an extreme selfie, then you know where to go.
