The Atmosphere in  indoor deserts of Kolmanskop in Namib desert

Once home to hundreds of German miners, seeking their fortune in the Namib desert, today Kolmanskop is slowly vanishing in the desert sands. 

Photographer Álvaro Sánchez-Montañés captured the loneliness of this abandoned town

 In the 1900s workers found diamonds while working in the area and this caused an influx of German miners. And it wasn’t long before the village was born. Kolmanskop had a theater, casino, school, bowling alley and even an ice factory.
