About this title

Synopsis:

Adrien Golinelli's (b. 1987) photo essay combines fine art and documentary photography. The city of Ordos in China has only existed since a few years ago, but is already a ghost town. One of countless new city projects in China, Ordos is the biggest, the most megalomaniac, and the worst situated one: in the middle of inner Mongolia's vast steppe, in a region lacking water and trees. Originally, Ordos was set to welcome at least a million inhabitants, but repelled by its harsh climate and exorbitant prices, barely a few thousand ever settled. There is no activity in Ordos, except building Ordos.

About the Author:

Born in 1987 in Geneva, Adrien Golinelli is a swiss photographer based in Geneva. He studied literature at the University of Geneva, with a specialization in Linguistics. Passionate of international geopolitics, he has traveled to more than forty countries in conflict and dictatorships. He places people at the heart of his work, willingly intimate. Through the individual, he reflects on the economic models and its social implications. His series Behind the Scenes” realized in North Korea, was awarded the Young Talents Paris Photo 2012.
