The salt flats photography of Scarlett Hooft Graafland somehow makes the already surreal Bolivian landscape even more so. For those who aren't familiar with this part of the world, the desert hosts a stretch of land that is blindingly white. Sometimes in the right conditions it acts as a mirror.

In this case, however, the salt flats photography isn't reflecting so much as becoming a large scale canvas for Graafland and her quirky view of the world. She has loaded trucks with geometric forms, laid materials on the ground to form colorful carpets and haphazardly placed furniture to create abstract scenes that truly play with the mind. Raw nature and industrial structures have never gone together so well.
