Saga Lands


As the word ‘saga’ refers to both ‘history’ and ‘story’, the images from Saga Lands reveal the documentary and narrative potential of landscape photography. Taking inspiration from Icelandic saga literature – the most extensive literary source on the history of early European exploration – I spent several years photographing archaeological and saga sites throughout the North Atlantic, resulting in a series that traces a westward journey from Scandinavia to the New World.
