landscapes with antenna

Nouakchott- Atar, km 15

Just started a small series of diptychs (20X20 cm and 20X30 cm).
The series are about the road that links Nouakchott to Atar and the introduction over the last 3/ 4 years of communication antennes for mobile phones. Those almost empty spaces, devoid of human beings became occupied by the presence of those antennas that symbolise the arrival of technology in a land devoid of the most basic infrastructures.
