Stunning Landscapes of Salt Look Like Images of An Alien World

Illustration for article titled Stunning Landscapes of Salt Look Like Images of An Alien World

If not for the occasional tire tread marks or glimpses of a wire fence, one could easily mistake Emma Phillips' photos of a salt mine in Western Australia for images sent back to Earth from a probe on the surface of a distant moon or planet.

Phillips, a Melbourne-based photographer, stumbled upon the abandoned salt mine while she was camping in the desert. She walked through the gates and took all of the photographs in just a few hours. The images, framed to enhance the sense of scale, appear in a self-published book appropriately titled, Salt.

See more images at Phillips' online portfolio.
