La Guajira


La Guajira, photo essay by Sarah Palmer

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.

I’ve never been able to answer this question without stumbling over my words. Maybe with time it will get easier?
