About me

The  photos are shot and edited by me, Áskell Þórisson, a journalist and former editor. Most Icelanders know Bændablaðið – Farmers newspaper – which I founded it and ran for the Farmers’ Association for almost 12 years. Previously, I was a journalist at Tíminn – Time – and later journalist and editor of Dagur – The Day – a newspaper in Akureyri. Later I worked for the Agricultural University of Iceland and The Soil Conservation Service of Iceland. 

For many years, I been very interested in photography, not least close-ups in Icelandic nature. I use Nikon 850 and usually I choose 60 or 35 mm lenses for my work.
