Iceland’s landscape in black and white; when photography is not about colours but about emotions. Fierce, stark and ethereal. This is how German photographer Michael Schlegel sees Iceland. An empty, primitive land where the only inhabitants are the elements of nature. The combination of simple frames and high contrasts with the wise choice of shutter speed captures the beauty of the landscape, the wind, the fog and the running waters.
Schlegel’s project “Iceland” won first place in Fine Art/Landscape at the International Photography Awards. His work has been featured among many others in Black & White Magazine, Zoom Magazine and D-La Repubblica. His most recent exhibitions include Sylt & Iceland – Flo Peters Gallery, Germany and Iceland & Australia – Photo Münsingen in Switzerland.
