Title: The Nature of Light
Location: Þórsmörk (2016)
The pitter-patter of raindrops falling on tiny stones echoes through the canyon. The river rumbles and groans below, but you can hardly hear it. Only when you focus on it entirely can you notice its bubbling and mixing. Your face is damp. A slight wind cools your nose and eyes. The clouds open like curtains to reveal the nature of light upon the walls of time. You can finally see the history of the landscape. How the water moved through the thousands and thousands of years. To create. To mould. Meandering and making. The river, the artist. The hard light dries your face. The smell of the summers flowers blooms from the sun. You’re warming up. The river takes on a new role, as your guide. You follow it from start to finish. Where does it end? When did it begin? You smile at the moment and its immensity. The curtains close again and time collapses back to where you stood. How long were you away, floating?
Welcome back. What I’ve just described is a written memory of my own to help you visualize a subjective phenomenon that I like to call “Natural Resonance”. It’s the total immersion – auditory, visual, and sensory – of being fully engaged with a moment out in nature. The purest form of connection with a fleeting experience, temporary beauty, and transient nature of the world.
When was the last time you had this feeling?
For this collection, I’ve curated a set of my most powerful visual representations of Natural Resonance that combine both landscape and wildlife portraits captured exclusively in Iceland between 63° and 66° North. Through these prints, I hope to connect you to the Northern Resonance.
Whether or not you’ve been to Iceland, you can practice the skills of immersion to enhance your own experiences out in nature. To bring you closer to the scenes presented in Northern Resonance, I’ve included written descriptions for each portrait, which you can decide to use if you’d like. If you do, they’ll enrich your enjoyment of the visuals. Otherwise, you can try to imagine and contemplate the photographs without context. Wherever they end up living in your home. Practice making up your own experience in your mind, meditating on the impermanence of the moments that have since passed, captured in each photograph hanging on your wall. Imagine the silence. The intensity of the earth being created. The power of nature. It's forgiving complexion. And its relentless capacity to change, surprise, and inspire.
SIZING GUIDE & ADDITIONAL DETAILS BELOW ON THIS PAGE.
Secure Delivery: Because the packages provided by the supplier are so protective, prints are rarely damaged. However, if a package does arrive damaged and the print is also damaged, you can contact me directly by email. You’ll need to photograph the package and the print and send the details to email@example.com along with your order number and tracking info.
Delivery Time: Orders ship out within 24-hours of your purchase, but can take up to 15-days to arrive, so please have patience. I'm using the trusted service of theprintspace located in London, UK. They're incredible, but only offer Flat Rate Worldwide shipping, which is limited in terms of order tracking numbers. From my experience so far with the previous print sale, everyone has received their orders, but due to COVID delays, things seems to take a bit longer than normal. Keep in mind that I'm all alone in trying to manage the print store right now, but I promise, you will get your print!
Estimated Average Shipping Times.
- Europe: 3-5 Days
- USA & Canada: 7-9 Days
- Rest of the World: Up to 10 Days
As a final request, please consider emailing me only after 15-days from the day you purchased. I wish I could respond to every customer with the tracking details, but it's quite overwhelming since I've received hundreds of orders during the most recent sale period. I wish the system was automated, but unfortunately it's all manual at the moment. Thank you for your patience and consideration.
Exchanges & Returns:
Straight refunds are not accepted as these are limited editions prints, but I’m confident you’re going to love the print and cherish it forever. But if it isn’t what you expected, or it’s somehow damaged you can exchange it for free. Once the package is delivered, you’ll have 5-days to notify me via email firstname.lastname@example.org if the print is either damaged or if you’d like to exchange it for another of equal value. Shipping is free if the print is damaged, but if you want to exchange the print, you’ll need to cover the shipping costs, plus the cost of the prints. Unfortunately, I cannot accept back prints that have been delivered as there is too high a risk of them being damaged or lost in the shipping. I do not keep an inventory of prints as all orders are made within 24-hours of purchase and shipped out from the print lab in London or Germany. Therefore, because I do not keep a stock, I cannot accept back prints for this reason.
Secure Payment: Card details are never stored and if using any other payment method like PayPal, I’ll never have access to any of your sensitive payment details. Everything is handled through Shopify and is fully encrypted.

In some instances, your first payment is due when you make your purchase; otherwise, your first payment is due 2 weeks after your purchase.

Which payment methods are accepted if I use the option to pay Instalments on Shop Pay?

Edition Numbers: All prints are limited edition. Once the edition sells out there is never going to be another printed. Ever. At this time I can not accommodate special requests for specific edition numbers. Although it is a common practice when purchasing through galleries and exhibitions to ask for a specific edition number, the ordering system that I currently have in place does not allow for easy modifications after the order is placed online. For artwork that has a history of sales, you may receive a random As such, if you order two prints of the same image, you might not get consecutive edition numbers. For example, you might get Edition 5 of 15 and 1 of 15 for the same image even though you order the prints at the same time and even if the print appears to be almost sold out online.
