Time travel

There is a Facebook-group called ‘Iceland the Photographer’s paradise‘ where everyone can share their pictures about this beloved country.
I often visit the group when I need inspiration or just something to cheer me up.  It’s so nice to see the well-known Icelandic places through other people’s eyes.

The other day Mr. Ivan Beales, a member of this group shared a few amazing black n’ white pictures that really caught my eye. Looking at those old photos was like opening a time capsule to the past. I contacted him for more details, but he unfortunately couldn’t tell me much. The pictures were taken by a ships photographer on a cruise ship, date unknown.

If you recognize where this photos were taken or who the people are in them, don’t hesitate to share it with us!













Magical pictures from the land of giants

After a road trip around the country, Rovina Cai, an Australian illustrator decided to document her adventures in the form of these wonderful illustrations. Spiced up with fantastical elements, the pictures look like scenes from old Icelandic sagas. The illustrations were bound into a tattered-style sketchbook.

“I love making illustrations that evoke a sense of intrigue; images that make you linger, hungry to know the story behind it. My work is often inspired by the past; from myths and fairy tales to gothic novels, these stories resonate with me because they bring a little bit of magic and wonder to the present day.” – she writes on her webpage.
