My work consist mainly of two types of photography.
Classic and Abstract. All shot in Italy.
All prints are available in a limited edition of 15. Signed and numbered with artists stamp on rear side. Printed on museum quality Hahnemuhle Fine Art Paper.
Where I aim to capture the daily life in Italy, Italians and
their surroundings. Individuals going about their business
in everyday life. There is something unique about each and every one of these people, they are all a part of something bigger.
In my abstract serie "Past Refraction" I focus on the connection between war and peace in a symbolic and abstract way. I connect the symbol of peace to an old
construction crane located in Venice Italy.
The doves of peace flying around the old crane
that was used to make armaments in war times. It now rests its arms overlooking the ancient city of Venice.
From early age I was always facinated by photography. Being with my uncle, a local news photographer in my old hometown in Iceland, in his darkroom watching him turn a white paper into black and white photograph was amazing experience for me.
In my early 20´s I was presented to my mentor, a legendary photographer, Pall Reynisson, who tought me the craft. Even though I´ve turned to digital technique the method is the same as being in the darkroom. The only thing I miss from the darkroom is the smell from the chemical liquids.
I´ve been exhibiting my photographs through Scandinavia
in recent years with good success and I am grateful to be able to share my vision with others and meet new people who are interested in black and white photography.
All the best,
