Silk Road Stories
Taken over the course of more than ten years these works are shot on black and white film. Donkeys, power stations, nomads and rusted billboards are all treated with equal reverence and curiosity. They present the quiet dignity of their subjects along with the surreal happenings where ancient and modern worlds collide.
