Ekaterina Anokhina: Inner Mongolia

“And where is it, this place?”

⤑ Selected as one of the Most Beatiful Photo Books from the East by Calvert Journal

“That’s the point, it is nowhere. It is quite impossible to say that it is located anywhere in the geographical sense. Inner Mongolia is not called that because it is inside Mongolia.

The most stupid thing possible would be to attempt to describe to you what it is. Take my word for this, at least - it is well worth striving all your life to reach it. And nothing in life is better than being there.” “And how does one come to see the void?” “Look into yourself.” said the baron.

2015 has been an amazing year – a few thoughts, a few impressions, a few reviews.

A Riso-printed journal with single images about the last few years; a love letter to friends, strangers, places, roadtrips and the darkness.

Nausea is a reaction of organism when you have absorbed too much; the food you swallowed has been split but could not be digested.

"It's kind of a portrait of the whole generation, probably the last one before social networks and over-conscious self-representation."

A list of photobooks that I discovered this year on the one side, and on the other side some books from my collection which are totally underrated.
