Budapest-based photographer Bence Bakonyi knew he would visit the town of Dunhuang the moment he caught a glimpse of it on the surface of postcard. Positioned in western China on the shores of the seemingly infinite Gobi Desert, the terrain cried out to him to be traversed, as it had thousands of years previously by the merchants and nomadic peoples of the ancient Silk Road.
During Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi‘s one year stay in China, he sought out to find “home” in a world completely unknown and foreign to him. Unable to speak the language, and with no assistance, it was nearly impossible to communicate with the local people. As a result, he refrained from photographing people and instead focused his creative energy on capturing the environment. Segue is a photographic journey of a foreign space, as depicted through landscapes and inanimate objects.
