Iceland was the second major project in the series, looking at the extravagant super jeeps of Reykjavik in their urban environment of minimalist Scandi-architecture. Once we started shooting we also discovered some rather surprising Americana from Iceland’s days as a US military base and the local youth’s penchant for big German saloon cars. Iceland is also home to one of the world’s more extreme forms of motorsport in Formula 4×4, where 1000bhp jeeps with paddle tyres are driven up impossibly steep lava strewn hillsides. The images were exhibited in a major outdoor exhibition in Reykjavik in 2016 and the book of the project is available on our Etsy site.
