4) This is a photo of an alley at night in Reims. The night can be full of liveliness, revelry, and cheer, but there is also a dangerous, mysterious side to nightlife. This alleyway represents the hidden sections of towns and cities where the underworld lurks, where the things that make night dangerous dwell. In this photo, there is a street lamp that keeps the closest part of the alleyway bright, but as one moves deeper into the alley, one finds themselves surrounded by more and more darkness and more and more danger. This lack of light is what makes us cautious and is what gives the people who hide in the darkness their edge.
