Desert Life – Mirages or Reality

Desert life… Yes, no matter how ironically or impossible it may sound – there is life in deserts. Furthermore, the diversity of desert life may impress, astonish and inspire – and all at the same time. Deserts may seem dead for people who have never seen them before, but it is only an optic illusion. Once you tune your vision, a desert will show you an amazing world: interesting, very special, and, definitely, full of life. Of course, desert life differs from that of a crowded city, rainforest, or savannah – it is silent, slow, calm, secret, almost invisible, and often shocking, but still it does exist. Even the desert itself lives, increasing its dominion meter by meter…

We have spent hours searching for photographs, which could represent desert life “as is” so to say. Now we welcome you to enjoy the pictures of the desert life showcase. All the pictures were made by different artists and photographs, but it seems that all of them wanted to achieve one and the same purpose – to draw people’s attention towards deserts as a part of our Universe and to stimulate interest to the life, which exists in deserts. After all, there are people, living in deserts; they are part of the Mankind, and though they live pretty independent and self-sufficient lives, sometimes those people do need the attention as well as a helping hand from the rest of the human kind…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
