Review quote

""Iceland Above & Below" is first and foremost simply a beautiful book. This large coffee table volume represents many years and many trips to Iceland by Swedish photographer Hans Strand. It is a book of images with very little technical information about each one. Beautifully printed with a wrap-around color cover in a hardbound binding, this is a volume that screams pick me up and look at me when it is resting on the table."

About Hans Strand

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 photographyshow more
