These strange and dramatic formations, called monoliths, rise above the ocean like towers in a beautiful display of forms. They are the stone pyramids of time, continuously being washed by rain, carved by wind, and waves. Generated by volcanic activity, the monoliths are oftentimes surrounded by fog, in a mysterious, dramatic, and otherworldly atmosphere. This set of images are part of a larger project imagined in white and black, as this was the most expressive way of re-creating these unique landscapes.
