On the eastern side of Iceland the massive Vatnajökull glacier melts into the Jökulsárlón iceberg lagoon. Seal-sized chunks float out through a small channel into the Atlantic and then get washed back onto the shore of a black sand area called Breiðamerkursandur.

I spent some time taking portraits of these beached, waning icons through a diffraction lens to capture their bursting light-modulating effects. This one was my favorite.

Printed CMYK (Aqua / Fluorescent Pink / Yellow / Black) with @coloramaprint in Berlin this past November and photographed in Iceland as an artist-in-residence @simresidency in October.
