Inside Out

by Melissa

Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés is a photographer born and raised in Madrid and now living in Barcelona. These photographs where taken in Kolmanskop, a town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia. This town was once a rich diamond mining village and home to a small town that flourished and then died. Richer diamond deposits were discovered further south, operations were moved, nature took its course and the desert sands reclaimed these spaces and Sánchez-Montañés was there to capture its beauty.
