Aerial perspectives can tell so much, from an all-encompassing vantage point, but also the mood of a location, and the way it fits into the larger landscape. This striking series by Leah Kennedy shows a vast and empty desert landscape, dotted with small, almost toy-like homes. What we’re seeing is the outskirts of Swakopmund, Namibia, in Southern Africa. The Monopoly-piece homes are part of a development that has taken shape over the last few years, bringing communities to an otherwise featureless part of this land.
Her unique perspective on this unusual place makes for a striking visual canvas. The cute, colorful homes are appealing for their small stature, but the tree-less, featureless surroundings make us feel vulnerable and turned off. We know Namibia to have some of the most impressive landscapes and animal life on the planet, so it’s new to see this strangely desolate side of the country. Via Behance:
