This work comes from Cian Oba-Smith who spent a year in Iceland photographing. His work is a an exploration of the overwhelming sense of loneliness in Iceland. With their population just 332,000 (200,000 of which live in the capital Reykjavik) which equates to about three people per square kilometre. Cian’s work is a study of the people and places of this very sparse and lonely country. Documenting the desolation and loneliness that the country evoked in him during his time there in early 2014. The entrancing things about good documentary photography is that it speaks for itself, Cian’s work is a beautiful display of life in Iceland.
