 Utopia [26 images***** | random | see 25 more images**** | switch to videos]

Altered-perspective landscapes as an invitation to Change Our Perspective in the way we interact with the environment and its people.

Inspired by the panoramic vision of the Namib Desert's wild horses, this collection of surreal landscapes initially emerged from the lands of southern Africa, especially Namibia.  These images have been exhibited at the National Art Gallery of Namibia during June 2017, with the official opening by Hon. Minister Pohamba Shifeta (Environment & Tourism).
