Iceland : Nature of the North Hardback
In Halldor Laxness' novel Under the Glacier, the protagonist travels from Reykjavik to the mythical volcano at the Snaefellsjoekull glacier, a place in whose shadow "words cease to have even the slightest meaning." This could be a leitmotif for Jurgen Wettke's Iceland images.
Whereas language can hardly convey the majesty and beauty of a landscape, the photographs in ICELAND - Nature of the North speak volumes in their eloquence.
Wettke's photographic journey across the volcanic island is guided by nature's elemental forces: he shows us the diverse forms of fire, water, air, light, and earth.
Whether the structures of lava flows, sculptural ice formations, or nature's artworks, aurora borealis, lighting up the sky-Jurgen Wettke's photography brings us closer to these wonders of nature.
We discover Iceland in an entirely new and breathtaking way!
