Location: Iceland

I have always considered myself an artistic person and I have always been involved in art in one way or another. Photographing is an exciting form of expression for me and I love capturing everyday moment with a moody feeling to it. For me the storytelling of a photo is very important and I try to connect with people’s emotion through my photography. Subjects like Landscapes with dramatic clouds, captivating sunlight’s, moody winter scene and the beautiful Northern Lights are a special interest to me.

My work can be categorized into four themes. Winter in Iceland, Sunsets, Northern Lights and Icelandic Landscape where I try to add to my objects subjects like open roads, lonely houses, wide areas and abandon places. Something that reminds people of the beauty of isolation and being alone in nature.

The Brick Lane Gallery in London was the host of my first show earlier this year. This winter my work will be exhibited at Venice, Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House Gallery as part of FUTURE LANDSCAPES, It’s LIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival, at Galleria De Marchi in Bologna as part of Little Treasures 2016, at BIAF 106 international Art Fair in Barcelona and finally at PAKS Gallery in the Castle Hubertendorf & Palais Werndl in Steyr/ Austria.
