Brooke Holm, Sand Sea VIII

‘Sand Sea’ is the latest body of work from Brooke Holm. Shot entirely in the Namib Sand Sea, the oldest desert in the world, where vast and inhospitable stretches of sand dunes transform under the African sun in stunning gradients of red, brown and pink.

Diving into the expanse of the Sand Sea, it appears never-ending. With wind blowing in from the hinterland and coast, particles and dust are gathered to form enormous dunes, their magnitude seeming nearly impossible to comprehend. Each intricate detail within the ribbons and patterns in the sand appear perfectly positioned as if there were a mastermind at work.

On first glance, the photographs bear a resemblance to the human body, reminding me of our complicated relationship with nature and its magnetic pull on the human subconscious”
— Brooke Holm
