Photography series turns world’s largest salt flats into dreamy fairytale

This vibrant photography series brings to life the magical, surreal landscapes that exist on the largest salt flats in the world.

Created by Navina Khatib, they bring vibrancy to the perfectly flat land, making the environment seem like something out of a fairytale.

The saltflats – Salar de Uyuni, in Bolivia – are set between low mountains and measure approximately 10,582 square kilometres.

Since visiting in 2011 and being fascinated by the area’s beauty, Khatib has looked for ways to redesign the landscape in colourful ways.

This provided the basis for her series, “Colors of Salt,” and talented Navina completed her final work involving Uyuni seven days ago.

Moving forward, Navina plans to continue adding to this series, having visited Las Coloradas in Yucatan, Mexico, this year and with plans to visit Lebanon in the future.

In order to create the works, Navina, 39, would first select a landscape photograph that already has an otherworldly touch to it – such as those abstracted with analogue filters like prisms.

Then, redesigning her own work somewhat, Berlin-based Navina uses layers and multiple exposure techniques.
