Earlier this year photographer Reuben Wu spent a week traveling in Bolivia, shooting images of arid landscapes at night, illuminated by specially modified drones. Long exposures resulted in surreal images of wandering lights and landscapes that look composed by Wu himself.

“My favorite memory from the trip to Bolivia is shooting the salt flats at sunset,” Wu says. “The salt crystallizes into beautiful polygon shapes stretching into the horizon and, as the sun was setting, the shadows cast by the glowing salt ridges became longer and longer, and so the landscape would look different every few seconds. Being there and watching the landscape change as the sunset moved across it, that feeling just stuck with me.”
