Icelandic Adventure with Hans Strand

2015-01-28 Celebrated Swedish photographer Hans Strand has just published his latest book, and this one is very close to his heart. Entitled “Iceland Above and Below”, it’s a collection of work shot in that country on the ground and from an aerial perspective.

“When I visited Iceland for the first time in 1995 it was love at first sight,” Hans says. “Now I must have travelled there around 20 times to take pictures.”

Naturally Hans, a previous Hasselblad Master in the Landscape category, used his favourite Hasselblad cameras to shoot most of the material in the book, and the quality of his vision is outstanding.
