Flowers in The Desert : The Search for Chile's Disappeared

"In the hallucinatory photographs of Paula Allen, the lunar landscape of northern Chile's desert stretches toward the horizon like a sea of grief. That arid land is the perfect metaphor for the unremitting pain of the women of the disappeared. Their suffering is that vast, that terrible. The tiny figures of the women with shovels in their hands, scouring that plain baked by a brutal climate, are in these photographs converted into eternal symbols."
- Isabel Allende
