After 3 years of dealing with the effects of Covid in my Pandemic Prison, I was released to a 10 day adventure in this majestic and magical land. Little did I know how this land would change me.
This adventure demanded a collaborative partner that was up to the challenge of creating in any weather condition in this rugged country. I was blessed to have the multi-talented Ukrainian artist Anastasia Arteyeva join me who I have known off and on for 10 years. Little did I know how she would change me influencing my creativity. She embraced the challenges enthusiastically and came to this land with her own recent challenges escaping the war in her homeland. We were also thrilled to spend one day shooting with the local creative, Icelandic Selkie.
I truly believe fate brought us together to experience this life affirming creative journey in the unique landscapes of Iceland. From the physical challenges of ever changing weather, hikes and drives in a 4x4 vehicle through fog shrouded mountain passes to reach remote shooting locations, we thrived on the joy of creating together. Iceland renewed each or our souls and reignited the Engine of my Life.
For that reason, and in celebration of my 30th year in photography and 20th year focused on fine art nudes, I have created this page dedicated to sharing our spiritual and creative journey.
