pink and blue hues from the world’s largest salt flat

By

As a kid, artist and photographer Navina Khatib would look at the world through kaleidoscopes and cellophane. She never quite grew out of her fascination with filters and reflective papers, so when she visited Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni (the largest salt flat on Earth), it was only natural for her to bring along a prism. Using the analogue filter, she created dreamy, otherworldly snaps filled with hazy pink and blue hues. Rather than capture the realistic terrain of the salt flats, Navina instead chose to focus on the feeling of standing on the natural wonder. That feeling, we think, must be akin to walking for days and reaching a mildly hallucinatory state, if these wonderfully trippy photos are anything to go by.
