NB: This is a Lambda print on C-type photographic paper. All our prints come with a certificate signed by the artist and a unique edition number. The prints are produced with a white border around the photograph to allow for framing. We also have included some cotton gloves to protect the print during handling.

On a visit to Iceland in October 2006, Caroline de Vries visited the famous Gullfoss waterfall and was entranced by how the naturally weak sunlight dreamily illuminates the ancient landscape.

Bathed in a blue light the landscape takes on an almost lunar character. Blades of grass growing near the mouth of the waterfall are covered in layers of ice as the spray collects on them and freezes. Caught in this icy embrace the grasses become rigid and erect and like giant glass pin heads they take on the appearance of a strange and undiscovered plant species.
