Photographed in Latvia:
An homage to the short summer of Latvia in August, Onaka's photography depicts various scenes from the country, including the festival of a minority people in a small town on the Baltic and a country town several hundred kilometers by bus from the capital Riga.
Photographed in Spain:
Onaka recorded in photographs his journey by train from Bilbao to Madrid, Seville, Algeciras, Granada and Barcelona. Removed from the stereotypes of blue skies and chalk houses, his depiction of Spain has a distinct sense of distance.
