Bence Bakonyi – Exploring China

Segue – China’s rural and man-made side captured by Bence Bakonyi.

Photographer Bence Bakonyi spent one year in China, where he tried to find his home in a world that felt strange and unfamiliar at the very beginning. Without being able to speak Chinese, it was difficult for him to talk with the locals. At the beginning of his journey he tried to avoid the metropolitan areas. Therefore, Bence Bakonyi wandered through the vastness of China’s landscapes. Instead of taking pictures of people, he focused on their environment. In the course of his journey he started to explore the cities as well. If you look at his photo series you can see the development of his journey as well as the long process of getting used to the country. The photo series takes you on a visual trip starting with rural places up to the man-made world.

A few images can be seen below but I recommend you to visit Bence Bakonyi’s website to explore the full series. His online gallery includes a variety of different photo projects.
