When China meets Turkey

During this year I am living, working and traveling in China.
My new project ‘Blueprint’ is investigating the interaction between original and copy.
The reason for this is my fascination with this cycle of creation and imitation in the Chinese Textile industry. The photo serie ‘When China meets Turkey’ is taken last summer in the Chinese province Xinjang, where I went to for a research trip and travelled part of the old Silk Road. Thats how I met the family Täklima, an origin Uyghur family living a modern ethnic live. They invited me to stay over for a couple of days. A whole new China chapter began.

Please enjoy my daily snaps, enlightening the movement of fabrics, patterns & color.
Classic & Colorful Turkic Traditions facing the daily unpolished Chinese lifestyle.
