I’ve recently spent a month in Bhutan to work on a project.

During my free time I’ve managed to go out and shoot a visual piece about this mysterious and wonderful place:

Built for 1 million people and currently inhabited by just a few thousand.

It’s been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles.

Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.
