Oasis Hotel

This illustrated book from Nicolò Degiorgis documents a hitchhike along China’s Cross-Desert Highway, a road built in the mid 1990s to help the extraction of oil. The journey records the road and its people – truck drivers, cotton pickers, oil well workers and prostitutes, whose lives are caught up in the dependency and desolation of the prospering oil industry. The book came second place at the “Categoria Book – Fedrigoni Top Award 2015”.
