Wuhan before Wuhan

Wuhan before Wuhan captures a transformation process, both personal and photographic, of the Spanish photographer Jorquera, who reached in 2007 this Chinese city, at that time completely unknown for the West. He chose Wuhan, located in the country’s hinterland, far from the megacities like Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, in order to settle there and create bonds, to focus on a more doable place, nestle into the context. But the lack of referents and communication led him to feel isolated, and isolation led to disorientation Thus Jorquera Began to undertake a more introspective odyssey, a journey inwards, where Wuhan represents something very basic yet universal: the quest for identity.
