Otherworldly Photographs of the Atacama Desert by Richard Cavalleri
The Landscapes of the Atacama Desert Are Out of This World
While browsing through Behance, I stumbled across these breathtaking landscape photographs by Quebec-based photographer, Richard Cavalleri. I immediately found myself blown away by the serene beauty and quality of these photographs of the Atacama Desert. The crisp and highly detailed exposures made me feel as if I was viewing realistic illustrations of a fantasy world from a dream or a video game; so I wanted to do a quick research on this location. After reading more about this location, I found out that this desert has been compared to mars because of its otherworldly appearance and mars-like soil, according to Nasa.
This comparison to Mars is fascinating and supports why these images have a such a fantasy/sci-fi feel to them. Cavallari's photographing and processing is incredibly effective in expressing the otherworldly nature of these images. Check out some his amazing shots below.
