The diamond mining town of Kolmanskuppe, abandoned in 1954 by its German founders, is now a favoured tourist destination and a magnet for photographers. After decades of battering by the wind, the sand has taken over the buildings and crept inside and around the walls and doors. This ghost town is now an eerie relic of a time long gone. I made many images, as does everyone who visits this place. This is one of my favourites.
