Franck Bohbot’s wonderful twilight photographs of Atlantic City’s beachfront

French-born, New York-based photographer Franck Bohbot shoots public spaces with an eye for the cinematic. His studies of empty cinemas, parks and unusually deserted Manhattan streets hang in the balance between documentary and fiction in depictions of the widely mythologised East Coast twilight and West Coast sun.

The series Looking for Atlantic City charts the city’s beachfront amusements, salt water taffy, snow cones and funnel cake. All set in sickly, saturated twilight overrun by neon pollution, Franck’s photos take you right through this familiar seaside tradition, all the way to the sugar comedown.
