Of the desert, photo essay by Nikos Kostopoulos


A desert is a barren area of land where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. Thus being said, it really feels strange when now days deserts are considered “oasis”, an escape away from the mega cities and our busy lives. During my visit last November in Iran I found the desert a cleansing experience, a sanctuary away from “civilized” society. Only thing left was to prolong my stay and reread Fierce Invalids home from hot climates by Tom Robbins. It’s too bad I didn’t have the time. These analog memoires are my souvenirs of such an escape. (Nikos Kostopoulos)
