The magical world of Venezuelan desert – panoramic shots of mysterious beauty, portraits and life-stories of women and men, whose lives are as frugal as the landscape, but also as pure as a glass of cool water. From their eyes and their narratives emerge dignity and wisdom. The photographer Horst Friedrichs and the author Elisabetta Balasso have approached these people with enormous sympathy. They have learnt about miraculous stones, healing plants and ancient customs. They have seen how one fashions clay pots and construct chairs. They have heard about agave-hearts and about goblins that live near the water. This illustrated book is crammed with magic realism, which takes the reader along on an exceptional journey.
