The Atacama Desert is considered the driest desert in the world. Its origin dates back to about three million years. The area was formerly a seabed and, in the central sector, periods of 400 years without rain have been recorded. The silence, emptiness and loneliness are the vital themes that characterize this series. The play of the "chiaroscuro" and the lines sometimes makes us think of a pictorial composition rather than a photograph. Aridity and large spaces amplify the strangeness of the place creating surreal dreamscapes.
