Icelanders abroad

Recently, in between work related stuff, I’ve been spending time getting to know and photographing a group of people who share something in common, something that makes me decidedly envious and endlessly fascinated.

These people are the Icelanders in London, and it’s been a real privilege getting to know so many of them. There are six of them currently featured on the site, but I’ve met far more, and hope to have photographed around 20 of them by the end of the summer.

After a few weeks checking that people were happy with their portraits being made public, and gathering information about them and their chosen possessions, I was able to launch the site officially this afternoon, and it has been really well-received so far. I hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to sharing more stories and photos from these lovely people soon.
