    Unworldly landscapes

    November 01, 2011

    This project is my humble attempt at portraying the essence and spirit of the surreal Icelandic landscape - sometimes pure poetry with a touch of magic. Sometimes vast, tantalizing desolation, raw or sublime: Food for imagination, and life- sustaining for my inspirational muse.

    I enjoy the solitude of this landscape, and prefer to visit the islands interior landscape during the off- season to ensure little distractions from other travelers. Experiencing this kind of pure solitude for up to a month at a time gives plenty of room for inner dialogue with the angels and demons of my own personality. A catharsis that hopefully has given birth to some decent photographs.

    No other place on earth gives me the same feeling of freedom. Iceland is one of the few places on earth where it's still possible for a hopeless romantic such as me to go chasing stars and find a little bit of mystery.

    My travels to Iceland have had all the ingredients of a true adventure, and I am very grateful and to have had this experience.
