Photographs from the Frozen North.
Within the still imagery of Ómur, Benjamin focuses on the shape, texture and anatomy of the Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions, both in close detail and broad scale to emphasize the other-worldly and sublime elements found in this part of the world.
'Ómur' - An Icelandic word defining a reverberated yet softly fading echo, describes the depicted landscapes as they undergo constant transformation amidst the ever-changing seasons of the North. Many of these images are the last remaining echo of formations that have eroded, melted, transitioned and perished since the time of their documentation.
ÓMUR was shown at The Print Space Gallery in Shoreditch, London from August 23-29. The exhibition will re-appear across Europe in the coming months. Please stay tuned for more information.
