Alan Barrett Images | Man Made | Namibian Ghost Towns

The best known diamond ghost town in Namibia - and the most accessible - is Kolmanskop, near the town of Luderitz. However there are two other smaller towns, Bogenfels and Pomona, which can be visited even though they are in the Prohibited Area where diamonds are still mined. The images here were made at all three towns.

The play of reflected light on the interiors is a photographer's dream which is only enhanced by the sand-dunes that the wind has created, notwithstanding the inevitable footprints of countless earlier photographers.
