Label TextOlafur Eliasson is a Danish artist who is well-known for photographs of Iceland and his installations that often incorporate light and its effects. This image is a fine example of Eliasson's photographic work in whch he records the barren landscape of Iceland. It becomes an otherworldly or sublime presentation of the natural world, a fitting parallel to his installations. Source: News, January February March, 2009.
