These pictures of Chile's Atacama Desert were taken on a photographic expedition in February 2010 based in San Pedro de Atacama. The aerial shots were taken on a flight between Santiago and Calama. The photos of the Tatio Geysers focus on geyser holes and run-off rather than the geysers themselves. Those of the Guardians record the anthropomorphic qualities of the huge rocks dropped by ancient glaciers. Those of the altiplano landscapes reveal the textures and colors generated by light on the desert's varied mineral and geologic formations.
