Hans Strand's stunning images of Iceland with a collection of images combining aerial views and studies from the ground and below. A result of almost 20 years of traveling to this fantastic volcanic island in the middle of The Atlantic.
Hans Strand was born in 1955 in Marmaverken, Sweden. After a nine year career in mechanical engineering he decided to make a dramatic change to devote his life to landscape photography. Which had been his long held hobby and great passion. It is a change he has never regretted. Hans has always felt himself drawn to the untamed and unmanipulated that he finds in Nature. As Hans use to say " The wilderness is the mother of all living things. It is always true and never trivial". His work has been displayed in numerous exhibitions and published in many international photography magazines. He has also received several awards for his photography including 'wildlife photographer of the year' & Hasselblad Masters Award 2008. Hans has published 3 previous books of landscape photography
