Publisher's Description
Previously available only as a limited edition portfolio, these photographs show a landscape of sculpted glacial ice and and volcanic ash, a terrain alive with waterfalls and rich mosses. Far from being icebound, Iceland is revealed by Porter as a world of startlingly brilliant color and contrast, possessing a sharp, crystalline beauty. Introduced by Porter's son Jonathan, the book's text chronicles the unique character of the land. "Iceland possesses a primordial quality, as if one were a time traveler viewing an earlier formative age of the earth."--from the introduction.
