The first issue of Iceland Review in 2017 appeared as people were ringing in the new year. It has been sent to subscribers overseas and waits to be picked up by those traveling through Keflavík International Airport.
The cover photo and the magazine’s main landscape series feature distinct shapes in the Icelandic highlands, while the varied subjects include legendary stupidity, equine education, ocean pollution, hip eateries, buying land in the countryside and a new government taking shape.
In his leader, editor Páll Stefánsson wonders whether Iceland’s many artists are shaped by the long dark winters, whether the endless darkness enhances creativity.
This issue portrays a new punk museum, design label Helicopter, a retrospective of press photographer Gunnar V. Andrésson’s work, young clarinetist and novelist Arngunnur Árnadóttir, and Björk, who with her appearance at Iceland Airwaves showed that she stays in shape.
Don’t miss out on Áslaug Snorradóttir’s colorful food photography and recipes for shaping up, or Páll Stefánsson’s photo essay, capturing the magic of the winter sun.
