Between Two Worlds

Title: Between Two Worlds

Location: Westfjords, Iceland, 2016

How strange the surface must seem to a whale.

Born to the water, but bound by air.

Does a whale resent the shackle of returning to the surface to breathe?

I wonder if they dream to explore the depths of the ocean without ever rising again.

This image was captured way back when I first got a drone. At the time hardly anyone really had them, and they were just becoming popular. So, whenever you’d see something from the sky that had never been really seen before, it got you thinking in a totally new way.

When I captured this photo of a lone whale, I was on a trip with my Mom who was visiting Iceland for the first time. We were actually up in one of the most remote regions of Iceland, the Westfjords. One morning we decided to take an early drive out along a particularly beautiful mountainside road that hugs the coastline. Relishing the bright, calm waters, the morning seemed almost surreal in comparison to our rather sleepless night.

The night before had to have been one of the most intense wind & rainstorms I’ve witnessed for the region. Apparently, the swell of the ocean rose several meters above the high-water marks in a few close by fjords. And the one massive cruise ship that had parked just offshore reported seasickness for essentially every single passenger as they hung on for dear life out in the open sea.

So, needless to say, when we finally awoke in the morning to a perfectly still day, we were surprised. We of course celebrated with the drive along the coastline to a favorite little waffle shop run by two older Icelanders in their tiny home on the coast. It was inside, mid-bite, and surrounded by syrup, coffee, and the confectionary aroma when Mom noticed the sound.

WOOOOSSSSSSSSShhhhh. Swooooossssssshhhhhh. We both looked at each other. Again, Woosh, splash. Standing now at the door of the cabin, we could see the spray still lingering in the still air. A slight rainbow glistened in the mist. By the time Mom started to say, “Is that…?” We were already in the truck, racing to the other side of the skinny fjord.  

We sat watching the single whale breach and recede into the glassy waters of the fjord for who knows how long. From above we could see every tiny detail. The pulse of rising and falling was so regular it got me thinking. Did this whale know we were there watching? It was so silent in the fjord you could hear someone cough from a few kilometers away. Surely the whale could hear us if we could hear it. I wondered at that moment what relationship a whale must have with the surface. Perhaps they are just as interested in what goes on in our world. Or maybe they have more than enough to explore in theirs.

Emily, USA

To me your photos are like a very tasteful crossing between a photograph and a painting. And the fact that the animals are portrait as serious as I'm used to see a human portrait being done but without losing the wilderness layer.

ONLINE vs. OFFLINE

I’ve been selling my prints offline in galleries, exhibitions, and world-renowned art shows to private collectors for years. You'll notice based on the color guide that many of the artworks already have a history of sales. This is the first time I’ve ever offered them to an online audience. Now that I'm selling online, I can offer a much greater selection at standard sizes at even more accessible prices. More below about sizes.
