Sand of Time, when the presence of man dies under a layer of sand

The abandoned, decadent and decaying places that decompose have always been at the center of the aesthetic and artistic research of the French photographer Romain Veillon. His photographic series shows what happens to buildings, to the evidence of the presence of man once he is gone. Specifically, in the series entitled Sand of Time, Romain wandered through a small town in the middle of the Namib desert that once prospered thanks to the presence of diamonds in the area, but once the deposits were exhausted this place that responded to the name of Kolmanskop was completely abandoned.

Today the sand has almost completely submerged the houses, creating what could be a perfect setting for a post-apocalyptic, post-man film. Handfuls and handfuls of golden grains invaded the houses, almost reaching the ceiling, but creating a unique photographic subject, which seems almost an installation. Discover Sand of Time in our gallery.
