" From Their View"...Sigthor Markusson

From Iceland, Sigthor Markusson explores the other side of his commercial work and shows us the beauty of form and landscapes in  


" Bare Landscapes is a photographic expedition across the topography of Iceland.   The journey is mesmerizing as a visual exploration of natural bodies, that of the land and the female form. They  are exposed raw, unadorned and blooming. Whether resolved against volcanic rock, sequestered in craters of ice or simmering in hot springs, these images have been chiseled out of time, beautiful and natural. The Bare Landscapes project has spanned more than a decade, and will continue on as more images are created."

" After living in the US for so long and traveling back to Iceland each year I began to experience the country as a visitor might, taking in its raw beauty, and seeing the land like never before. It was upon one of those visits that the Bare Landscapes project began, when he started photographing, and appreciating what he had taken for granted for so long."

  3. I am fascinated by the black & white image of the woman; very rich and natural. Good work, I love it.

  4. I find the imagery in these two images nice and interesting. I find the green in the second image, especially when viewed larger, to be so saturated that it glows and commands too much of the eyes attention. For me lowering the saturation the green just a few percent would keep the same visual effect intended but reduce that shocking color effect.

  5. I had to take a second look because these images were pretty fascinating. There were a lot more than these to appreciate on your website, and I think I have a much better understanding of what the entire project encompasses. The book was an impressive plus too.

  11. The one above, woman and cave figures is just beautiful. All the lines are directing eye from ground to earthly beauty, and thorough that into the sky, heaven. Vignetting keeps interest in the essential, and colours are not oversaturated, which keeps it in reality. Kiitos.
