Erratic Photography: Alvaro Sanchez-Montañes

Today I'll show you a photographer from Barcelona named Alvaro Sanchez-Montañes.

A couple of years ago, after hearing about Namibia's spent diamond mines, he went there to document the vacant homes that were being reclaimed by the desert. He captured a haunting, poetic reminder of the impermanence of all things, or as he puts it, "the beauty in the abandoned, of the useless, or the time passing by."

He also has an evocative series of landscapes he photographed in Iceland entitled "Landnemar," which is Icelandic for "The Settlers."
