Artist Statement

ÍSLAND, the first book of Réza offers a photographic story in a three-part progression: mysterious, picturesque and unexpected. This visual story begins with a series of waterfalls that punctuate the landscape of the country and the tourist’s itinerary. Revealed through a play of light and shadow, each image evokes the atmosphere of the Icelandic legends the waterfalls are named after. The story continues with images of a timeless and rugged landscape. With the same graphic interest, Réza captures the profile of a glacier or the juxtaposition of black sand and snow. ÍSLAND ends with aerial views that merge the contrasting abstract yet organic qualities of this unique landscape
