Silvia Bächli and Eric Hattan spent four months, from March to June, in Seydisfjördur in eastern Iceland. The landscape they explored on their daily walks is dominated by snow, which shapes the atmosphere in and around the fjord with its changeable forms: turquoise meltwater, frost patterns, a few glass-clear bright colours in the whiteness, walls of snow by the edge of the road, drifts, icicles and at last the first brown snow-free places — things are slowly turning green. The artists create a unique portrait of Iceland’s magnificent landscapes with their photographs, in all its detail, thus chronicling the passage of time and the approach of the warmer season.
Silvia BächliとEric Hattanの2人は3月から6月までの4ヶ月間をアイスランドの東に位置するSeydisfjördurで過ごした。毎日散歩する場所は全て雪に覆われ、その風景は時間によって変化する。2人はこの壮大なる景色を写真に収め、アイスランドの肖像を独自の目線で作り上げた。
