Work in Progress (2015- )

Using photography and video, I am currently surveying how the sharp increase in tourism is reshaping the Icelandic landscape. As a foreign visitor, I have been witnessing the tourism explosion unfold since 2011. As a temporary resident of Iceland, I have become acutely aware of the number of issues that this industry raises – its environmental impact, the forces of gentrification and the commodification of natural sites and local culture, to name a few. The outcomes will unfold over time; however, one thing is evident – the tourist has become part of picture.
