Traveling through the colossal landscapes of Iceland, it was hard not to feel like a piece from a miniature toy set. In this series, landscapes are punctuated by seemingly miniature people. A herd of toy horses grazes on a mountainside, tiny homes appear arbitrarily dropped into massive valleys, looking more like homes for the fabled Icelandic elf than for any human person.
This is the power of the Icelandic landscape; its vastness and textures, how it reflects and molds light. These otherworldly qualities make Iceland seem like a place of magic. But maybe the fabled Huldufólk is actually its occupants and visitors, dwarfed into the magical persona by the sheer magnificence of the land itself.
