Benjamin Hardman’s Vision of Iceland

We’ve been huge fans of Benjamin Hardman’s Instagram for years, with his sweeping, stark, and massive-in-scale visions of Iceland. Australian by birth, Hardman lives in Iceland, and clearly feels at home in the land of stunning landscapes and raw nature.  His photography is often taken from an aerial perspective, which allows the camera to capture the beautiful patterns that the landscapes make. Rivers, tributaries, and glacial flows become organic swirls. Stark snowy landscapes are cut through with a black volcanic edge of rock.  An arctic fox shown in beautiful close-up detail.  A visit to his Instagram page shows nearly half a million followers, a testament to people’s love of his nature visions.
