Dutch artist combines photography and installation on the Bolivian salt flats

Inspired by “the wonder of creating situations that have never existed before and will probably never exist again," Dutch artist Scarlett Hooft Graafland ventures deep into remote territories to create strange, captivating images that combine photography with performance and installation. From 2010 through 2011 her place of work was the Bolivian Altiplano, where she incorporated local materials (salt) and mythology to craft these surreal landscape images:

"I am mostly interested how local people survive who live in such harsh circumstances - the Inuit in the extreme cold, endless winters on the one hand, and also these Bolivians who live in the Altiplano in the highlands of Bolivia. On the borders of the salt desert, it seems almost impossible to be able to make a living. I like to experience nature as such a strong force. We humans might think we 'rule the world' but at the end of the day we are just a tiny fraction."
