What's waiting around the next corner? A volcanic eruption? A sleeping sheep? Or a midsummer night festival? Two photographers explore and sense Iceland in all seasons – the land of mythical beauty and rapid weather changes, the island in the Atlantic where the embers of the earth touch the eternal ice. Heike Ollertz has captured the full power of the lonely landscapes in captivating color images, while Edgar Herbst gets unusually close to the people and their raw energy in his black-and-white photographs. ICELAND is a coffee table book full of contrasts about a country that carries its secrets deep within itself and can be much warmer than its climate.
