These images capture Iceland's cool tones of winter and the pervasive, omnipresent silence of its landscape. They combine to emphasize isolation, desolation and untameable terrain. They are not meant to be “realistic” in their reflection of the landscape as most eyes see it, or as perfect as technology would allow. But they are no less honest or true, because they touch us with their gauzy beauty, three dimensional shapes and range of textures. They are simple but mysterious, and we want to engage in the experience.
