The Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flat, born out of prehistoric lakes. It covers more than 10,000 square kilometres and sits at 3656 metres above sea level. It’s also the place where every November, three different species of South American flamingos come to breed.

And as if the Salar wasn’t unique enough already, enter visual artist Navina Khatib. After she returned to Berlin from her trip to Bolivia, she realised that the pictures she took of the Salar didn’t really evoke the same feeling she had as she was standing there. And so she used digital multi-layers to turn the Salar into an abstract, pastel-coloured enchanted place.

See the results of her work in the gallery down below.
