From the artist:
'We Come From The Land of The Ice and Snow'
This series is a continuation of my 'Displacement' series, focusing on the concept of solidarity and wanderlust. This project was shot in Iceland. In comparison to the usual self portraits I make within landscape ('Displacement'), these images are not of myself but speak of how it feels to be in solitude and searching for the right place to be from a universal standpoint. With nature playing a huge role in this series, a timeless place has been created, where everything becomes dreamlike, where nothing seems to be real or certain.
