The Swiss foundation CareLink commissioned me to photograph the key visuals for its new Corporate Identity.
The New Silk Road.
The Chinese Belt and Road Initiative is biggest the infrastructure project the world has ever seen. For a new book (planned for fall 2020), I'm travelling along this New Silk Road from Shanghai in China to Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
I spent about one month in the Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. One million people live in the world's largest refugee camp. There's not much hope for the Rohingya. They can't go back to their home country and they can't stay in Bangladesh either. See here a selection of the pictures I took for Helvetas, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and Swiss Solidarity.
Japan is a country of real contradictions – which are increasingly leading to impossible tension. The struggle between tradition and modernity, eastern and western living, protecting and opening up the country poses great challenges. The economy is crashing, the population dying off. A photo-essayistic approach to an elusive country.
Ukraine is a relatively young country. Thirty years after the break-up of the Soviet Union, it is more divided than ever. War is raging in the east between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian nationalists. Domestic politics is a struggle between forces who want rapprochement with the EU and those who want to remain independent. Society is riven between conservative Christian circles and progressive liberal modernisers. A multimedia confrontation with a country on a blood-stained quest for its identity.

In my book, Japan - Abseits von Kirschblüten und Kimono, I show Japan in a way that's different from the way a tourist may explore it. It's a very personal Japan.Patrick Rohr Kommunikation GmbH
