Photographs of the Icelandic landscape between nature, civilization and globalization

Olaf Otto Becker (*1959 in Travemünde) has been traveling the far north for over ten years. In search of the unseen image of the primeval landscape, in which the eye reaches the limits of normal vision and nature becomes a mirror of the soul, he observes geographical peculiarities and waits for optimal lighting conditions. Only then does he set out, often in the middle of the night, with a heavy large-format camera in order to be able to capture nuances even in soft light and to achieve maximum technical quality – Becker’s consciously subjective view goes beyond depicting reality and creates Images of great clarity, breadth and concentration. The publication brings together previously published and new photographs of Iceland, which, in addition to original landscapes, show traces of civilization and the economic crisis.
