About

Iceland Squared

Using both traditional film and digital photography, I would like to create a photographic book of natural subjects in Iceland, such as glaciers, mountains, and geothermal features. All photographs in this project will be in a square format, hence the title Iceland Squared. I will use my skills as a photographer and graphic design artist to produce a high quality book from start to finish. I will shoot each photo, color correct, design and layout the book, proof and then oversee the printing process.

The book will include roughly 50 black and white and color photographs printed on heavy weight paper, and protected by a hard cover with canvas. Also, unique to this book, a perforation on each page. The perforation will invite the viewer to remove their favorite 10” x 10” square photograph for mounting and framing. The reverse side of the photograph will offer location information, geographical coordinates with viewing direction and notes. This will allow the viewer to return to the same location or find the spot on Google Earth.

Equipment

I have all the equipment needed for this project.  Here are some of the items I will use:

Sony A350 DSLR. This camera has the resolution to produce 10" by 10" photographs for this book.

Holga 120S Pinhole. A camera that has been modified for pinhole photography.  It uses a medium format 120 size color or black and white film. Used mainly for experimental shots.

Garmin 60CSx. A GPS unit that will be used to locate the geographic position of each photograph.

Your Donation

Your donation will help provide travel and accommodations while on Iceland. This will give me the opportunity to photograph some of Iceland's many natural features. The funds will also help produce and publish the book, Iceland Squared. Please feel free to contact me on Facebook or my web page with any questions about the project. It is my hope to share the book with you and thank you for your support.
