Namibia

Namibia was one of my first photo assignments. I travelled the obvious photo locations such as Sossusvlei or Etosha National Park, but also visited off-the beaten track areas such as Bushmanland. The highlight of the journey was renting a Cessna (without doors) and taking photographs of the Namib Desert at sunset from above.

It was back in the era of analog cameras and Fuji films. All these pictures were taken by my bellowed Nikon FM2 camera and Nikkor prime lenses. I carried two plastic bags of films – Fuji Velvia 50 and Fuji Provia 100 – about 120 rolls altogether. And then I spent days and days, actually nights and nights, of scanning.
