Gary Wagner's Iceland project has come from many years of photographing the landscape and having taken thousands of images of the land, sea and mountains over the past forty years. After researching Iceland’s terrain Wagner felt confident that its landscape would work well with his image style and be an exciting location for creating art.
Iceland is often referred to as a, “Photographers Paradise” and that is exactly how he found it when he arrived at this island country located just below the Arctic Circle. Arriving at the summer equinox provided almost 24 hours of daylight for capturing images of this spectacular location. On several nights he was out past midnight with the sun was still present on the horizon and he said he found the light perfect for image making.
Landscape, seascapes and the world around him is the studio he uses for his photographic work. He finds freedom, and inspiration to create his interpretations of the natural elements and scenic vistas that come to his view at these locations.
