Project Description

– YOU DON’T TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH, YOU MAKE IT –

Some say it’s Art, some say it’s “magic” – I say it’s using your vision and the tools at hand, in my case, being my trusty Nikon, to Make the Image.

It’s the Making that is the magic of photography.

– KOLMANSKOP NAMIBIA –

A ghost town in the Namib in southern Namibia, 10 kilometres inland from the port town of Lüderitz. Once a small but very rich diamond mining village, it is now a tourist destination.

The town was ultimately abandoned in 1956. The geological forces of the desert mean that tourists now walk through houses knee-deep in sand. Kolmanskop is popular with photographers for its settings of the desert sands’ reclaiming this once-thriving town, and the arid climate preserving the traditional architecture in the area.
