‘Planet’ follows photographer Yu Yamauchi’s five-year journey to the heart of Mongolia and the Inner Mongolia region in China. His pictures record the different ways of life of the Mongolian people, from nomadic groups with their reindeer and camels, to city dwellers with their modern technology. In a way, he is tracing the progress of humanity. The scenes he captures seem to exist independently of each other, yet all are from the same region, the same time. Travelling thousands of kilometres, Yamauchi’s sense of time and place faded away, leaving him to contemplate planet Earth itself. A planet with multitudes of worlds, separated only by experiences and differences in perspective.
