This was my second visit to the world’s largest salt flat. I had fallen in love with this other-worldly place two years prior. It’s an incredible experience being surrounding with what seems like infinite, silent, whiteness and eternal horizons. I had previously been inspired to visit Salar de Uyuni by a local installation artist: Gaston Ulgalde who plays with placing unexpected colored objects or people within the powerful and spacious, white environment. The most talented Ellie Connell of Reeling films captured on camera an impromptu photo-shoot showcasing some SS18 and FW18 pieces....I just walked out into the white!

The Cactus Island (Isla Incahuasi) is a magical island remotely located in the midst of the expansive salt flats. The island hosts a multitude of gigantic, ancient cacti. You can do a short, hilly hike around the island from which the views out amongst the majestic cacti are spectacular!
