In 2013 I was invited to Nes Residency for the month of April where I researched Icelandic mythology and landscape to create a body of photography and film work. Some of the photography created in residency is below along with a link to a film that was concepted in Iceland and finished in Minnesota. Images taken during my residency in Skagastrond, Iceland are also included.
Skagastrond is a fishing town.
Haze created by strong winds.
Icelandic Blizzard Cookies, made during a long stretch of brutal weather. Best paired with scotch.
Interesting rock formations.
Old map of Iceland, found at the Skagastrond library. This map appears to be updated from the previous image.

Icelandic horses are a special breed that have a unique gate and a Bowie-esque mane.
Iceland has some very unique architecture.
