Book launch party and a collective exhibition by four different artists.
Collaborating in their travels through remote parts of Iceland - each one of them provided a unique perspective on documenting the peaceful, profound, beautiful, isolated locations - which are collated here to create a narrative of their journey together.
Julie is an avid traveller and an experienced photographer, having received her first camera at the age of five. Stylistically her work evokes great depth and mood through composition as a narrative device. Often her inspiration comes from small moments in far away places. Her upcoming projects include a gallery exhibition in Iceland, a book documenting her travels to Georgia and Azerbaijan, and a photography workshop in Argentina.
Réza has always practiced photography in parallel with his studies as an engineer. In 2012, he discovered Iceland and became immediately passionate about its enigmatic landscapes and vast spaces.
Réza seeks to transcribe the landscapes of the Far North with the most fidelity possible by depriving them of all visual artifice. Contemplative, the landscapes he seeks to capture are rough, authentic, and minimal while keeping their mystery.
He continued his work of observation of the Arctic landscapes, even if Iceland remains his major source of inspiration, both photographically and culturally.
Florence is a Paris-based graphic designer, with an extensive experience in Publishing and Editorial Design. Over the years, she has developed a taste for minimalism mixed with a fine art approach and has collaborated on several different design projects. At the same time, passionate about photography, since 2015 Florence followedPhotography Workshops at Beaux Arts de Paris where she has developed personal projects focusing on photo books. Her participation in the book ÍSLAND is in the continuity of her vocation and offered her a total freedom of creation.
