A series of constructed images exploring Iceland by photographer Tom Chambers. He creates scenes that evoke magical realism and surreal fairytales by photographing separate elements and assembling them into montages using Photoshop. Each element might include the landscape, the sky, a human figure, or an animal which are scanned at a high resolution and combined to create the final image.
Exploring Iceland I stretched to look underneath, above, and around the edges of the landscape. What mattered was not right before my eyes, but delicately hidden in glaciers, volcanic rock, and ice, all of which have endured over many millennia. My photomontage series "To the Edge" celebrates the biodiversity of the natural world. Poet Allen Chamberlain inspired by my images, wrote this ghazal entitled Iceland, lines of which are incorporated into each image of the series.
