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."
