  • The living room window of abandoned farmhouse Gilsstaðir in northern Iceland. It was built in 1928 and the last people that lived there moved away in 1974. I made these photos in August 2014, but in July this year the house was broken down. Gilsstaðir was a beautiful farm in the magnificent valley Vatnsdalur, but things have changed and less and less people feel they can make living from traditional farming nowadays.

    From a portfolio of ageing structures in the landscape in North Iceland which I plan to exhibit in a local coffee house at the end of the year.
