What comes to mind when you think about Iceland? What makes it special? Is it the light? Or is it the glaciers, volcanoes and highlands? Or maybe the spectacular coastline and the contrasts between summer and winter? Nothing compares to actually being there, but the beautiful and stunning photography of Einar Guðmann and Gyða Henningsdóttir bring the reader close to the real thing.
Einar and Gyða have pursued photography since 2005 and are among the most renowned nature photographers in Iceland. From the beginning of their careers, they have specialised in nature in its various forms – such as birds, animals and landscapes – rather than people and man-made constructions. They have participated in a diverse range of photography projects and their work has been displayed extensively both in Iceland and abroad. They spend weeks at a time travelling around Iceland with their cameras and strive to raise awareness of the importance of protecting untouched nature.
