SNJÓFLÓÐ (Avalanche)

A rapid flow of pictures and drawings of Iceland. Like an avalanche, but made it in the opposite way; slow, delicate and carefully.

Snjóflóð (avalanche)

This book compiles photographs taken during a trip through Iceland. Iceland is fire, cold, ice, salty smell, pureness, isolation, solitude, wool touch, rock roughness.

As a journey through time, the photographs were taken with two 35mm analog cameras: Ilford Sportsman (1960s) and Olympus Trip 35 (1980s). The landscapes where time seems to stop evoke loneliness and hopelessness. Each photograph is accompanied by its GPS latitude (φ) and longitude (λ) coordinates to find those locations in the future.
