Juan Luis Morales
Our itinerary, which purposely overlapped with some of the routes taken by Marco Polo and Baron Von Richthofen, revealed many emblems that once seen could not be forgotten. The constant challenge was to capture the vast accumulation of information and the varied images encountered, in order to discern the recurring signs that help form a redundant memory on which the silk road’s temporal transcendence is based.
In the summer of 2018, Global Forum Resources sent photographers (AKA Atelier Morales) on a 13 000 km land voyage across China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan.
