Last week 'Land of Nothingness' by Maroesjka Lavigne was available at Paris Photo, the international Art Fair for Photography in the Grand Palais Paris. The full story and images can be found below.

"A country named after a desert, defined by the rich variety of colors in an ever changing barren landscape. It draws you in through a vast brown plain of scorched earth, and steers you over the white surface of a salt pan to finally arrive in the pink hue of the sand dunes. Patience is required to discover the wide range of Namibia’s subtly nuanced scenery. It literally takes you hours, driving though nothing, to at long last arrive at…more of nothing. The sight of other people is rare and only the strategically located gas stations are a reminder of the world beyond. This country is in another time zone. Time seems to move slower but it feels more logical. Captivated by these colored landscapes, you can drive for hours. Chaperoned by herds of giraffes or zebra’s, shadowed by flocks of flamingo’s, suddenly stumbling upon a family of elephants. The animals look up curiously, but soon forget about you and slowly continue their journey, at their own pace."
