Further - A short film on my journey of living and capturing images in Iceland.
In the summer of 2018 I joined forces with my closest friends at 66° North to reach a remote area of Vatnajökull by plane. My goal was to realise a dream of shooting over a specific section of ice on Breiðamerkurjökull, something that I'd been planning out for years.
Benjamin is an Australian freelance landscape photographer based in Iceland.
Five years ago, Benjamin embarked on his first photographic mission in an Arctic winter climate. Ever since, Benjamin’s passion for the cold has grown to lead him in search of the North’s most obscure landscapes – the barren, cold and volatile environments that are inhabited by colossal ice structures, carved volcanic mountains and resilient wildlife. Now calling Iceland home, Benjamin divides his time between a range of photographic assignments and solo exploration, whilst utilising social media as a platform to share his experiences and perspectives on life and nature in the North.
Benjamin's specific works on glaciers aim to convey the fragility and transitory intricacies of glacial ice amidst the current period of accelerated retraction and a changing global climate.
