PRIMORDIAL LANDSCAPES: ICELAND REVEALED -- FEODOR PITCAIRN. Ari Trausti Gudmundsson. PowerHouse Books, Brooklyn, 2015. Distributed by Penguin Random House LLC, New York. 256 pp. with 124 ills. (117 col.) and 110 reference ills. (108 col.). 28 x 35 cm. LC 2015-933677 ISBN 9781576877807 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: Primordial Landscapes: Iceland Revealed elegantly explores the diverse and raw beauty of Iceland's extraordinary landscapes through striking images by photographer and naturalist Feodor Pitcairn and the inspired words of geophysicist, author, and poet Ari Trausti Guomundsson. This collection illuminates topographical phenomenon shaped and crafted by the most powerful natural forces on earth: rain and glacier melt form thunderous waterfalls and rivers that carve at the earth's surface; arctic snow and ice peppering the land and sea with striking shapes and patterns, feeding the climate and water cycles; lava flows from active volcanoes that build vast, textured landforms where life can begin and take hold. These are the beautiful and extraordinary results of our planet's most fundamental geological processes. Pitcairn's passion for photography lies in his desire to convey the truest account possible of the natural environments he explores and strives to protect. Each Primordial Landscapes image was made with a digital Hasselblad camera, delivering superior color, detail, and clarity. A map and index provide intriguing geological and cultural information about the content of the photographs.
