Monks of the Atacama, Chile, 2013

Dibond Mounted / Lustre Paper / Laminated / Unframed



“According to legend, the salt flat of Tara, in north- eastern Chile, was the workshop of God. Here, so the story goes, God created the first model for man, natural monoliths standing at 30 feet high, the ‘Monks of Tara’.These monoliths are volcanic rocks formed tens of millions of years ago, prehistoric remnants moulded by ferociously strong winds, rain and snow, into these lone sentinels, watching over the snow- covered landscape.”
