There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described.
– Garry Winogrand
EYJA / ISLAND, an ongoing project, investigates places of interaction between the man-made and the natural in Iceland, one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. In a country, where vast regions are uninhabited and nature predominates, every trace of human activity, even the tiniest one, emerges with great intensity. This project portrays these traces and examines diverse processes, which occur in the areas on the edge of human and natural environment – intrusion, encroachment, mimicry, to name but a few. In EYJA / ISLAND two other worlds intersect as well – objective documentary registration meets the surreal.
