This was shot during sunset while camping in the vastness of Makgadikgadi’s pans, one of the largest salt flats in the world, located in the middle of the dry savanna of north-eastern Botswana. It was my first road trip in southern Africa, roaming 5 thousand Kms around Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
I think this photo explores the paradoxical sensations and questionings raised while immersed in solitude in those space-time dimensions untamed by civilization: wild but conforting, empty though fullfilling, insecure therefore free.

I took this photo of my brother when we were exploring the coastal volcanic rocks in Costa Rica while on a family vacation. I think the photo captures exactly how we felt in that moment. It was kind of an escape to just spend the day freely exploring.
