Most of the photos in this page are not mine. They are photos that I liked or I found interesting. I don't have any right on these photos, I haven't asked for that. They are simply pages of a newspaper, magazine, internet site or book and I kept them in an album. Many thanks to various medias including: individual photographers, museums, journals, web magazines and agencies -in particular TIME, FT, AP, AFP, Reuters, GETTY Images.
June 19, 2017 - Sand fills an abandoned house in Kolmanskop, Namibia, on July 23, 2013. Kolmanskop was a diamond mining town south of Namibia, built in 1908 and deserted in 1956. Since then, the desert has slowly reclaimed its territory, with sand invading the buildings where 350 German colonists and more than 800 local workers lived during its heyday of the 1920s.
