Kolmanskop is a ghost town in southern Namibia, a few kilometres inland from the port of Lüderitz. In 1908, Lüderitz was plunged into diamond fever and people rushed into the Namib desert hoping to make an easy fortune. Within two years, a town, complete with a casino, school, hospital and exclusive residential buildings, was established in the barren sandy desert.
But shortly after the drop in diamond sales after the First World War, the beginning of the end started. During the 1950’s the town was deserted and the dunes began to reclaim what was always theirs.

Kolmanskop, Namibia.  Kolmanskop is an abandoned diamond mine near the coast.  The “ghost” town has several residences and barrack-type accommodations, as well as the remains of a few commercial establishments.  Today the town is a photographer’s dream come true.  One cannot spend enough time taking in all the photographic opportunities.  For this photograph I had to crawl through a small opening in a window and have my friend pass my camera gear into me.
