I am also a photographer and with that comes an eye that is always searching for interesting and unusual scenes. I am typically drawn to colour, texture and contrasts in the world.
In Iceland one thing I have noticed is that the architecture is very boxy and functional without any detail or interesting features on the exteriors. After a while everything looks the same. In my driving adventures I started to notice only one type of architecture…and that is the churches. It seems every little village, hamlet and town has a small church that can be seen towering above all other buildings. This became interesting to me and I started to go and have a closer look at them. Most have been there for a long while and each is very different in the detail of windows, shape and colour. I started my own second project…chasing down the churches in Iceland. Have a look.
