Salinas Grande: official and unofficial landscape

I introduce you “Salinas Grande”, a striking salt desert in the Andean Northwest of Argentina.

It’s almost impossible to photograph this enormous empty space by avoiding the many tourists who flock to the area. At first, therefore, I focused my attention on the relationship between humans and landscape, a landscape that becomes “official” just because of the massive presence of tourists.

…but get just a moment to discover, behind the heaps of salt, some most hidden parts, perhaps more interesting, as this little open church.
