Iceland

This series of photos was taken during a winter stay in a remote part of eastern Iceland. It was a sparsely populated area, covered in a layer of snow. There was little life, and little colour. On daily walks, the surrounding landscape revealed itself to be a spatial lithograph, a three-dimensional black-and-white drawing. Part of the landscape was a dormant mine of dusty, black, coal-like stone that, together with the snow, made any subtle variances in the colour of the landscape invisible, and divulged its manmade rawness.
