Surrounded by the sound and fury of life in the 21st century, it would be easy to forget those places where solitude reigns, where serenity seeps into the soul and only silence speaks.

Due to the island's large area and relatively small population, many travelers experience a singular feeling of solitude on their visit, of serenity and even true quietness.

ICELAND SO QUIET is a journey to such places, seen trough the lens of photographer Kristján Ingi Einarsson

Born in Reykjavík in 1952, Kristján Ingi Einarsson began taking photographs at the age of ten, when he acquired his first box camera. In 1975 he began working as a freelance photographer for various newspapers, magazines, companies and institutions. A decade later, in 1985, he took over as director of the printing firm Leturprent ehf. Here he remained until the autumn of 2006, when he sold the business to return to his former pursuit as photographer. Kristján Ingi has held many photographic exhibitions and published a nufmber of children's books, including: Húsdýrin okkar (Our domestic animals), Krakkar, krakkar (Children, children) and Kátt í koti (Full of fun) and two landscape books The Essece of Iceland (2009) and Iceland so Quiet (2010). In his more recent work, Kristján Ingi has focused on landscape, with photos that endeavour to interpret his vision of his country.

Avilable in Engish, Japanese and Chinese
