About the series:
From the Open Your Mind - Tread Softly series, 2013. These works depict trail flags and mountain views along a walking track on Hrisey, a tiny island in Northern Iceland. At its core, photography, for me, is about collecting sites, with each photograph becoming a souvenir from your life. These trail flags loosely marked out a path across the island and provided the only evidence of human existence as far as the eye could see in almost every direction. To me, they suggest the futility of trying to work against nature and yet maintain a cheerful encouragement to continue on the path and absorb the invigorating views. These images are part of a larger body of work that takes its title from a sign at the start of the trail that invites the walker to experience the life force of the island and feel the natural energy radiating from the ancient mountains surrounding the island.
