I took this series on the shores of the dead sea (Israel) where many sinkholes are created almost every day. There are thousands of small and big holes in the ground, sometimes filled with water and minerals, or just empty and deep… it's all happening as a result of drying the sea and producing salt out of the water. all this process is man-made, we are destroying nature and living disasters for the next generations. There is a strange and mysterious beauty I can feel when I fly my drone and shoot these images of the sinkholes that sometimes look like a scene from a different planet.
