This is one of a series of photographs taken by Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés, a photographer who was intrigued by descriptions of an abandoned diamond-mining village in Namibia and went there to capture how the desert had taken back the buildings.
Left at the mercy of the Namib desert, the winds had filled the rooms of the deserted buildings with sand. The diamond village that had once been thriving was now more like a surreal dream. More images can be found at the photographers website. Via
