In September and October of 2010, I was working with fellow photographer Lindsay Blatt in Iceland on our short film and photographic project documenting the historic herding of the prized Iceland horses. Each year traditional herdsman take to the back country to round up thousands of the country's hardy horses, which have spent the summer grazing in the highlands. Throughout the three weeks of production we shot from land and air, foot and hoof across the vast Icelandic landscape, following and living with the herdsmen. We brought together a collection of media for print publications, as well as a short documentary film. In September 2011, we returned to conduct interviews for the film, and to produce a new selection of large format portraits to accompany the landscapes for future exhibitions. Here is a selection of my work from the collaboration. Please visit www.herdiniceland.com to experience the full multimedia project.
