This collection of my photos from Iceland is the result of 4 extensive trips through Iceland between 2009 and 2020, each 3 or 4 weeks long. I tried to capture my vision of Iceland's unique landscapes in my signature minimalistic style, often using long exposure times and shooting during night or dusk and dawn.
The next 20 images of this project will be released after 50% of the first part are sold.
Parts of this collection were awarded 1st place in Fine Art/Landscape at the International Photography Awards (IPA) and featured multiple times on Behance.
Laurel trees of Madeira, a volcanic Portuguese island.
There’s something awe-inspiring about these ancient trees that have stood still for many years. Some of them are said to be up to 500 years old. In this collection, I tried to capture the mysterious atmosphere I experienced while wandering in the fog amongst these majestic trees.
The first part of this collection includes 10 images from "Fanal I" and 10 images from "Fanal II", my two series from this woodland. More images will be added at a later stage.
