Winter reigns. Unseen forces in the watery abyss reach upwards and drive currents around the massive haunting ghosts. They wail as they break apart with sounds of grinding glass and splitting thunder, until the deep grows still. The giants endure, listlessly leaning on one another in a fog of dreams. Welcome to the purgatory that is this season, and join the wait for the release out to sea.

Year: 2023
Location: Iceland

We came here many times but the hand of the huldufólk seemed to make this night extra special. The quiet was absolute, the air cold and still. This unreal scene spread before my eyes at midnight, a poetic scene of brokenness and change. A point of warm light brings hope to the most challenging of seasons.
