“Life”

The photos are taken on Hvannadalshnjúkur in May 2012, this is the highest
mountain in Iceland and it is also on the biggest glacier in Europe. My aim with them
is to show the interplay between man and nature where the harshness of the country
and man’s life create a certain trilogy – past, present and future. Difficulties of the past
where the climbers are fighting with nature in cold and snow, the conscience of now,
stopping and to look at the mountain – where we aim and where we want to be.
Finally, the future where the direction is taken towards the top of the mountain
overcoming the harsh nature and our limits without knowing if you reach the peak or
not. The fourth picture the Angel is to protect and healing both the humans and the
nature. We need to take care of the nature and our self so we can live together.
