    Inspired by Houston Texas designer Kim Nguyen's Shattered Collection, The Gates of Hell is a visual narrative about a supernatural being who survives in the Namibian Desert after a fatal airline accident. Scavenging elements of the crash site, she is able to sustain life in a place the locals call the gates of hell. 

    Photography Process
