17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
The Eye

The eyes of the Salinas Grandes salt flat are considered sacred ground by the Coya community, and it is forbidden to photograph the place at night despite this a member of the community named Rodrigo Lamas saw what he was doing and what he wanted to show and I arrived at the place quite inside the saline it was an incredible experience to see the clouds go away and the stars and the eye became reality for me
