MAROESJKA LAVIGNE

 

This project started in March 2011. Travelling through Iceland for four months, a country I was unfamiliar with. The light was bright, colours were vivid and by the end of my trip the sun kept on shining all night long. Snow still held the country in its veil, creating a big white void. This has a way of cleaning up the landscape, the scenery gets more graphic.

Wondering how this scene would look like in wintertime, I decided to go back for another month in January. The country turns blue at dusk in wintertime. All colours fade. Cities look like scale models seeking shelter from the weather in the shadow of the mountains. It was my intention to express the dazzling moment, that sometimes, time seems to stop. - Maroesjka Lavigne
