“Out West” by photographer Patrick Wack is a fascinating look at China’s westernmost region, Xinjiang – a region that struggles to find its physical, cultural and political identity amidst the rapid growth of modern China. Wack’s visually arresting photographs capture the contrasts of this new frontier: abandoned structures, expansive landscapes, its devout faith, massive housing complexes and touching portraits of its inhabitants.
