The Longest Sunset

During a flight to Keflavík airport, it is possible to see a sunset for many hours. Staying in Reykjavík during December is like living in a month long sunset.

The most important thing for these works was maintaining focus on the quiet secret and intimate relationship between the photographer and the landscape.

The ancient struggle of the survival of man against nature forms the background for images that don't try to give answers. These photographs represent natural elements that are deeply connected to the unknown. There is a surreal aspect to the composition that obscures the interpretation of the image.
