Photo essay by Dariusz Klemens

The Great Indian Desert, in western Rajasthan, is a huge expanse of sand dunes, rocky outcrops and salt pans that extends for almost a half million square kilometers between India and Pakistan.

Known as the Thar Desert, it is one of the driest places on earth. Against the muted hues of this arid landscape, over the centuries, the people of the Thar developed a sophisticated language of colour.

I have been photographing India for over a decade. The photographs exhibited here were taken as part of an on-going project.
