Chromogenic print from negative.

DESCRIPTION

This work was produced while on residency at NES in Iceland in 2013, and shows the outskirts of Skagaströnd, Iceland and the slopes of Spákonufell, the prophetess mountain.

The unique outline of this looming rock, holding at bay a potent mystical/religious power casts a strange energy over people who live and stay in Skagaströnd. There is no place in town that it cannot be seen and it changes size and colour in the shifting light.
