Photography does not capture a moment in time, but rather a struggle - a struggle between light and dark, between shapes, lines, geometry and the empty space surrounding it all. The true value then is not what is immediately evident, but rather the things you slowly discover. In this case, the faint outline of timeless animals, the play between sand and horizon, and finally the realization that all is veiled by a thin and broken sheet of fabric.
