About the Book
Reykjavík, Iceland's capital, is among the most colourful in the world. It is hard to imagine authorities in Reykjavík contemplated the idea of taking down the multi-coloured houses of corrugated iron, to have them replaced by modern blocks of concrete and glass, but they did!
Thank Thor, only because artists, intellectuals and the like protested and started buying these houses, has this idea been abandoned! The early light of spring makes the buildings come alive. And the trees that start sprouting their delicate and tender leaves.
After having been working as a graphic designer for almost thirty years, I retired into my hobby: photography. That ran a bit out of hand, as a result of which I started looking for means to have my photographic work published through exhibitions and books. Blurb gave me the opportunity I was looking for, photo books being more suitable for printing-on-demand than being printed in (large) quantities that eventually end up in second-hand bookstores.
