2015 Emerging Photography Contender: Patrick Sampson

For HVITUR, London-based photographer Patrick Sampson braved the harshest storms to hit Iceland in four decades to capture astonishing images of the uncanny terrain. 

Writes Sampson in his Artist Statement, “HVITUR is a body of landscape photographs taken on expedition across Iceland during the winter of 2015. The images challenge the traditional landscape tradition through turning the viewers attention onto incredible light conditions and at times creating images comprised of elements of landscape.”
