MORE INFORMATION ABOUT DELIVERY

The artist

Jan Erik Waider is a visual artist and fine art photographer based in Hamburg. His focus is atmospheric and abstract landscape photography of the distant North: Norway, Iceland, Greenland and beyond. Jan’s desire to explore remote and rarely seen places provides unique opportunities to shoot magnificent vistas and landscapes. His meticulous and well-planned approach to his fine art photography immerses him in his surroundings. He was always drawn to the North. Exploring the cold, raw beauty of its landscapes became a form of meditation for him, and photography a way to preserve those fleeting memories. These quiet mesmerizing moments of contemplation and reflection are what inspire Jan the most. These are the moments where he feels connected and “at home.” His photography is a way of preserving these fleeting memories. Jan’s work should be seen as a visual journal. His photography gives us insight into his mind and imagination.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

This is one of the first waterfalls that I could not forget more than ten years ago on my first photography trip to Iceland. I had never experienced a waterfall of such dimensions before and the soundscape is overwhelming and if the wind comes from the wrong direction, you are wet within seconds. Skógafoss pours 60 meters into the depth over a width of 25 meters. On the eastern side of the waterfall a famous trekking path, the Laugavegur, leads up to the pass Fimmvörðuháls and further over the Þórsmörk to Landmannalaugar. A legend tells that the first Viking settler in this area (Þrasi Þórólfsson) buried a treasure in a cave behind Skógafoss. Years later a boy discovered the chest, but could only reach for the handle before the chest disappeared. The ring of the treasure chest is now kept in the Skógasafn Museum.
