Children of Skagaströnd, Iceland

During our 3 weeks residence at NES in Skagaströnd I took a photograph of Prophetess Mountain every day. Then I accompanied AnneMarie to (pre) school to make portraits of each of the children who twirled in front of the camera. Light striking the snow or ice surface was reflected back on the faces of the children, thus giving their skin an extraordinary translucent effect.

I have made a selection of 3 photographs out of 88 to present on our weblog. The series as a whole became a new entity of work within my oeuvre. Thank you all so very much: NES, AnneMarie van Splunter and the children of Skagaströnd.
