In February 2010, I embarked on a two-week trip to Chile. I was particularly interested in seeing the striking mountains and glaciers of Patagonia, but the landscapes of the Atacama completely enchanted me. Their forms, colors, and dichotomies went beyond my expectations. Even after six days of shooting, I felt like I had only caught a glimpse of the beauty of this land. The photographs in this book cover all of the awe-inspiring places I visited.
