    They’re deserts – but seen here in fine-art style.

    Italian photographer Luca Tombolini, who lives between Paris and Milan, has travelled to some of the world’s most eye-catching and unusual deserts to capture these mesmerising images.

    What’s striking are that his pictures underscore how deserts don’t necessarily look like classic Lawrence of Arabia scenes.

    Among Luca’s eye-popping series is a picture of a starry scene in Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area in Arizona, a barren landscape in Fuerteventura and a volcanic desert in Iceland.

    The 40-year-old told MailOnline Travel: ‘I definitely feel a sense of magic in the desert, being where no one else is. On top of that, since my unconscious attraction is for simplicity and pureness, the shapes of a barren landscape are almost hypnotic to my eyes.’
