Silvia Bächli and Eric Hattan spent four months, from March to June 2008, in Seydisfjordur in eastern Iceland. The landscape they explored on their daily walks is dominated by snow, which shapes the atmosphere in and around the fjord with its changeable forms: turquoise meltwater, frost patterns, a few glass-clear bright colours in the whiteness, walls of snow by the edge of the road, drifts, icicles and at last the first brown snow-free places – things are slowly turning green. The artists create a unique portrait of Iceland's magnificent landscapes with their photographs, in all its detail, thus chronicling the passage of time and the approach of the warmer season.
