La Guajira Desert is a vast, beautifully unaffected area in northeastern Colombia, along the Caribbean Sea. This region’s amenities are bare bones and unassuming, in a romantic kind of way.
With tourism growing rapidly in the country, the area won’t remain like this for long. It is a fleeting glimpse into how things were and are, for now.
Note: all images from this series are shot on film and created by composing multi-frame exposures in camera, with no manipulation in post.
