This unique photographic collection shows the stark Icelandic landscape with an ephemeral, intimate, painterly aesthetic.
While Iceland is often referred to as ‘the Land of Fire and Ice’, it really ought to be ‘the Land of Lava and Water’ because most of the landscape consists of solidified lava flows surrounded by rivers, streams, snow fields, glaciers, and ocean. It was precisely the interaction between these elements that I wanted to enhance with these images.
The photos are all single exposures made with intentional camera movement in August 2022. Sites photographed include the volcanic eruption of Fagradalsfall, Askja volcano crater and its lakes, Snafellsjökull glacier and around the Snafellsnes Peninsula, around the Reykjanes peninsula, and the Blue Lagoon.
