Photography: Salar de Uyuni by Asako Shimizu
The fact that I have never been to the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is ridiculous. I grew up in Paraguay for Christ's sake but somehow it has just never happened. I am going to Paraguay for Christmas this year and staying in the region for quite a while. The trip is booked and somehow again I have not been able to squeeze this into the schedule. After seeing Asako Shimizu's pictures though I have sworn to myself that this is it. The next time I go to South America, no matter the hassle or cost I will make it there. Asako Shimizu's pictures are taken with a Hasselblad. I might even try to dig my father's old Hasselblad out of the attic to see if I can also acquire the dreamy quality of her pictures. Looking at the pictures, it feels like a dream. The best kind where you are walking in clouds.
