In february 2020, few days before all the world was locked down for a virus, has been registered in Lanzarote the strongest sand storm since decades. The local name for sandstorm is “calima”, a special weather condition rather fascinating to me. I wanted to depict it since a long time, and the time arrived with a huge one. All becomes brown and the sun is barely recognizable, there is a hot diffused light from dazzling to soft, and strong wind.
I have long tested and developed during lockdown a special linearization system to elaborate the negative so that all the fading shades of the highlights can be there smooth in the print.
I am happy to offer you this series in a limited edition of 50, made on Arches Platine 310 g, museum quality 100% cotton rag, in 30×40 cm size.
