This piece is part of Skloven’s larger series of photographs, Chronicles of a Place Unknown. This body of work was borne out of her trip to Iceland in Summer 2008, where the sun never really dips below the horizon, illuminating the harsh and barren, yet completely active, landscape 24 hours a day. Skloven’s photographs highlight the active geology of Iceland, a case study in natural elements. Many of the country’s rivers and streams are filled with glacier melt, the direct result of fiery volcanic activity under massive sheets of ice.
