Throughout my one year stay in China, I tried to find my home in a world completely unknown to me. And because home is where one can find himself, the photographs can also be seen as self-portraits projected onto China. Without assistance and not being able to speak Chinese, it was hard for me to communicate with people. Therefore, I refrained from picturing humans and I focused on their environment instead. In the first part of my journey I had been wandering through the countryside, trying to avoid the metropolitan areas, but with time, I found myself in ever larger cities. In my journey's second part, it was increasingly challenging to avoid the portrayal of humans. The series follows the development of my voyage, as I gradually approached, starting from rural existence, the man-made world.
