Clint McLean is a photographer and photo editor based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. He is frequently traveling the greater Middle East and occasionally Africa or beyond. Of this series, Salt, he writes: ‘I have been photographing salt for about four years now. In that time I have gone to Ethiopia, France, Peru, Yemen, Mali and many other places to photograph it from the places it is harvested. My salt project started out though as a fascination that something so mundane and overlooked could come from landscapes so amazing. The project has now evolved to become a landscape based comment on grand beginnings having humble endings – and vice-versa – simple things that hide majestic pasts. The salt work is also in a subtle way about myself. The documenting of the salt also serves as document of my travels and provides a focus for my trips. These salt adventures are as much for the love of travel as they are for the photos’.
