Heat, Dust and Dreams is an exploration of people and environment in the Kunene region (formerly Kapkoland and Damaraland), territories in the north of Namibia. It reveals a remarkably diverse landscape heritage, and brings to light the surprisingly varied range of flora and fauna that have evolved to survive in severe conditions. The Etendaka lava field (a vast, Martian-like plain), the Welwitschia mirabilis (a remarkable, arid-adapted tree), large mammals that roam the desert, and a host of other features are all here, in photographs and text.
