"Deserts" is a selection of my most recent work in natural environments.

They are desert places far away from the sounds of towns and roads, and that are emotionally close to me, landscapes of deep silence that I revisit during the four seasons.

"Deserts" is my attempt to describe the essence of these timeless places and the austere beauty, but authentic and intense, that emanates from their dry land.
The images in this series are entirely made with the traditional cyanotype technique.
