Artist Residency in North Iceland July 2018

It was such a precious experience to be with the Baer Art Centre for an Artist Residency this July.  The Nordic style art centre is magnificent, simple, peaceful, clam but stylist.  We were 5 photographers and we all had our own studio, very big and comfortable, to live and to work.  We were not restricted but told to be free to create whatever we wanted based on our own artistic way and style.  It’s July, so the mid-night sun was there.  The sky was always bright and the sun was set only at 2am normally (and some time it was never set).  Because of this, we had plenty of time every day to take photos; with different lighting, different atmosphere, even we were in the same place.  Some time we went out alone and some time we went out with others.  I really appreciate the opportunity to learn from others, as well as having individual time to face my own self in front of the nature.  Given what I have been offered, I would say, this is one of the best art experiences in my life.  Thank you very much Steinunn for offering me this opportunity.  More photos from this residency will be up on my website.  Stay tuned!  :)
