— Icleandic Petrology


The purpose of the book, Icelandic Petrology, was to capture the rare beauty that was first revealed by the close reading and examination of the immediate rugged Icelandic countryside. The living landscape, characterized by its volcanic activity, is a geological mecca and carries a rich selection and varieties of rocks and minerals.
            Through detailed photographic material, the objects' diversity of color, pattern and texture is closely explored. To create depth and understanding of the objects' origins and aesthetic expression, the book contains easy informative texts, supported by graphic illustrations. The book functions as a play between being a single visual reference, but also as an inspiration for exploring the aesthetics of nature
