Breiðfirskar Svipmyndir I & II / by Magnus Thordarson

These two galleries display pictures I shot on the West Coast of Iceland, in the environs of Breiðafjörður Bay, where I lived and worked in the 70s and 80s before I moved to California.  I go back to the old hometown of Stykkishólmur on the Snæfellsnes peninsula each time I visit the country and spend as much time as I can on the stomping grounds there.  It's a lovely place, a haunting place for one who has moved away, a challenge to all photographers.  I shot the earliest photos in 1975, the galleries hence span over 40 years of taking pictures.
