Chiara Zonca is a UK based photographer who uses the subject of nature to investigate the passage of time on a higher scale than the human one.
After years living in a city and battling anxiety, her connection with nature has become a form of self-healing, a way to tap into deeper thoughts. Moon Kingdom is an emotional journey through the primordial landscape of the Atacama desert in Chile.
The series investigates the personal experience that occurs when existing in a space that has little to no signs of civilization. By taking time to live and breathe in these vast, eerily silent and untouched landscapes, she documents the shift in her perception of time and place…. Until she began to question whether the experience is real or just part of her imagination.
